Managed aquifer recharge (MAR) represents Requirements
the intentional recharge of surface water to Graduate and post-graduate students with
aquifers. MAR can be applied for seasonal Bachelor or Master degree in hydro
water storage, restoration of overexploited sciences or related areas. General
aquifers, prevention of land subsidence, knowledge on groundwater management
control of salt water intrusion, improvement (previous experience with GIS tools and
of water quality etc. simulation models are of advantage).

Depending on local conditions and project Application

objectives, aquifer augmentation can be Send your application (CV and motivation
primarly based on infiltration or interception letter) by email to Ms. Claudia Schnekerl:

Deadline for application
During the Summer School, the participants 30 April 2016
will get familiar with different MAR
techniques and will be guided through Costs
different steps in planing, operation and Participation to INOWAS Summer School
