Transfer to the Global Scale

The transfer includes the transfer of results to other areas with good infrastructure and long-term management experience in a regional context (Alento and Lez catchment areas) , and secondly the generalization of the indicators and the optimization process as a method. A rating matrix is ​​created that groups the sites according to the catchment area, soils, rainfall distribution patterns and assigns indicators to the respective combinations. This evaluation matrix is ​​applied to selected, international, large-scale carbonated aquifers with high water-economic relevance and a Mediterranean climate pattern. An important role in the generalization of the results is remote sensing as it provides soil-specific baseline characteristics on a regional scale and transfers regional results to sites with comparable properties worldwide.
