Greater water security with groundwater mapping

Airborne Groundwater surveyRethink Water & Danish Water Forum have published a white paper on the provision of fresh water and the ambitious groundwater mapping programme in Denmark, which has laid the foundation for the groundwater expertise of Danish companies. Today this expertise, which includes surveying technologies, software tools for integrated water resource modelling and decision-making systems.

In most parts of the world groundwater mapping is based only on  one data source: drilling information. However, low borehole density means that this strategy often leaves many uncertainties in the models. In Denmark, and a few other countries, geophysical measurements are used in conjunction with drilling to map aquifers. Intensive, large-scaleuse of geophysical methods, particularly airborne electromagnetic surveys in an integrated workflow together with drilling, makes mapping results more accurate and reliable.
