This project will develop a network specifically dedicated to monitoring and predicting temporal change in the location of the freshwater-saltwater interface. Monitoring of this interface is essential for effective management of coastal aquifers systems such as those found in Malta and Gozo. These type of aquifers are particularly prone to saltwater intrusion and up-coning and therefore the implementation of this monitoring network will allow for the development of an early warning system for the adequate protection of our groundwater resources.
