Europe has a long continental and island coastline along which many human activities are concentrated. Coastal aquifer development is often intensive and subject to salinity problems as a result of seawater intrusion, upconing of deep saline water, and residual salinity in aquitards. These coastal aquifers are important freshwater sources that risk being salinized by different processes. Often important coastal aquifers are of relatively small size but crucial to supply human needs, which vary f...
