Resum
The Sa Pobla area (Majorca Island, Spain) heavily depends on the use of groundwater resources for irrigation and urban water supply and is characterised by the presence of intensive potato farming activities. The Plioquaternary aquifer is unconfined and contains high levels of nitrate concentrations. To analyse the risk of contamination to the aquifer arising from agricultural practices, the amount of water and nitrogen leached below the root zone was simulated by the GLEAMS code.
