The INOWAS platform comprises a variety of analytical and numerical approaches that aid the user in designing and optimizing sustainable MAR schemes by assessing and adjusting operational and design parameters.
Selection of suitable sites is an essential part of planning and conducting a sustainable and efficient MAR project.
Application of managed aquifer recharge can have a positive or negative effect on other groundwater users, such as production wells or natural springs. The effects that MAR may have on …
One prime aspect of MAR is the assessment of the capability of an aquifer for groundwater storage to quantify the volume of water that can be stored in the subsurface.
Sustainable management of groundwater resources ensures self-sustaining use of aquifers and guarantees continuous supply for all groundwater users. This platform provides tools that help to balance water outtake from groundwater …
Assessment of clogging processes with regard to site-specific and operational parameters.
Evaluation of the risk of contaminant breakthrough during MAR application. Especially during the delvelopment of a MAR project, health, environmental and management risks need to be identified and quantified.
The INOWAS DSS helps to assess water quality changes in the injected, the recharged water or the ambient groundwater during MAR.
The INOWAS platform provides tools for the assessment of the resulting recovery efficiency when applying MAR.
The INOWAS platform helps to assess streamflow depletion and the application of MAR to sustain environmental river flows.
The INOWAS plattform can be used to assess saltwater intrusion in coastal aquifers and the impact of Managed Aquifer Recharge (MAR) schemes to mitigate saltwater intrusion.
The INOWAS plattform can be used to assess the implementation of MAR for the restoration of groundwater levels in overexploited aquifers.
