The program aims at formulating and implementing a large-scale model conducive to a quantitative assessment of the impact on aquifers of competitive uses of water resources, with reference to an agricultural context in arid regions. The program will require combining the analysis of information obtained from geographic information systems with available data about subsurface attributes. The application of the model will focus on the impact of uncertainties stemming from scarce information on various possible uses of water resources, including irrigation and management aspects.
