Groundwater dependent ecosystems - where groundwater supports the nature
Working together for a green,
competitive and inclusive Europe
Exciting News! Our most recent article delves into the effectiveness of national groundwater monitoring programs across Europe, with a special emphasis on Scandinavia, the Baltic countries, Finland, Poland, and Ukraine.
Exciting News! We’re thrilled to announce the release of the final newsletter for the EU-WATERRES project. Our exceptional team has achieved remarkable milestones, setting the stage for future breakthroughs. Join us in celebrating this partnership success and paving the way for more incredible collaborations in the future!
We are thrilled to invite you to the closing event of the EU-WATERRES project, a two-day hybrid event taking place in the picturesque city of Trondheim on November 22nd and 23rd.
This is a very special article as the first author, Marlen, is one of our youngest team members. This study focuses on the transboundary aquifer system between Estonia and Latvia. Utilizing open-source software MODFLOW-6, our developed conceptual model integrates the aquifer system’s geological and hydrogeological framework and simulates groundwater flow under transient conditions.
We are proud to announce that another article by our project team was published in September. This time, a team of experts from Poland and Ukraine shared the numerical model of the Lublin–Lviv transboundary groundwater aquifer system. This model can be used to define the optimal cross-border management unit and the conditions needed to sustainably exploit the Lublin–Lviv aquifer system.
What’s new from the EU-WATERRES team? Project implements new activity to improve transboundary groundwater management between Norway and Sweden. We had a 2 day event in Riga that was attended by almost 80 participants. And we have many plans for the last implementation year including dissemination events in Latvia, Norway and even South Africa and the USA.
From Shared Experiences to Collective Growth: Insights From the 5th Annual Regional Funds Seminar in Warsaw
On October 3-4, 2023, Warsaw welcomed the 5th annual thematic seminar of Regional Funds projects “Celebrating the European Year of Skills”, attended by 78 representatives of projects implemented under the EEA and Norway Grants Regional Funds. The EU-WATERRES project was represented by two project team members – Tatyana Solovey from Polish Geological Institute and Agnese Kukela from the University of Latvia.
Partners from Norway, Estonia, and Poland showcased their collaborative work on cross-border groundwater resources and anthropogenic hazards at the 50th IAH Worldwide Groundwater Congress in Cape Town. Presentations covered challenges in harmonizing groundwater data, modeling transboundary flows, and validating algorithms for estimating changes in groundwater storage, aiming to enhance global sustainable groundwater management.
