[MedPartnership] Aquifer vulnerability mapping: Evaluating simultaneously an aquifer’s vulnerability to land-based pollutants and saltwater intrusion

This study was conducted on the coastal aquifer of Ghar El Melhbin Tunisia where the aquifer’s vulnerability was evaluated by applying a new, experimental method called ACVM (Aquifer Comprehensive Vulnerability Mapping). This method establishes a single parameter called “comprehensive vulnerability” that describes simultaneously an aquifer’s "vertical vulnerability” linked to contamination threats from land-based pollution, and its "horizontal vulnerability” related salt water intrusion.
