electrical resistivity tomography saltwater intrusion
Project description

Sustainable access to drinking water and irrigation in Vietnam is in danger due to salt water intrusions contaminating coastal aquifers. In this project, we propose to train local staff to properly monitor the intrusion through deep electrical resistivity tomography measurements. We also propose to carry out field tests in the Mekong Delta to validate the approach.
