Tools and solutions for climate adaptation in relation to the water cycle

 
Technical opportunities for adapting to future climate changes have a growing research potential. Hydrological computations can be applied to evaluate the impacts of alternative adaptation strategies, including changes in groundwater abstraction, changes in stream morphology and maintenance, establishment of flood plains, fallowing agricultural areas in stream valleys, damming, etc. GEUS works with more aspects of this:
  • Changes in the groundwater resource due to climate change
  • Changes in abstraction for irrigation purposes and other farming effects 
  • Scenario descriptions in relation to large road or other construction projects
  • Possible solutions to prevent salt water intrusion into groundwater aquifers

Besides, GEUS participates in a number of different activites and projects related to effects on groundwater and the exploitation hereof in natural disaster situations, as well as climate change, resilience and adaptation in relation to water resources in developing and middle-income countries.
