Abstract

This paper addresses the problem of saline water intrusion into the coastal aquifers of Guves Prefecture, Crete. First, after contacting a carefully planned geoelectric survey we mapped all regions of the aquifer possessing the highest saline water intrusion hazard. Next, a system was specially designed which continuously monitored the movement of the saline water front and automatically controlled all nearby pumping stations. 1 Introduction This project addresses the ever increasing problem of coastal aquifer contamination due to uncontrolled movement of saline fronts within the upper geological layers. These phenomena are mainly due to the uncontrolled p
