Groundwater resource vulnerability and spatial variability of nitrate contamination

Insights from high density tubewell monitoring in a hard rock aquifer: agriculture has been increasingly relying on groundwater irrigation for the last decades, leading to severe groundwater depletion and/or nitrate contamination. Understanding the links between nitrate concentration and groundwater resource is a prerequisite for assessing the sustainability of irrigated systems. The Berambadi catchment (M-TROPICS/BVET/Kabini CZO) […]
