This study concerns the occurrence of arsenic in groundwater of the Cimino-Vico volcanic area (central Italy), widely used for drinking water supply and irrigation. The purpose is to provide a hydrogeological support for re-addressing the groundwater resource management in order to minimize the presence of the carcinogenic element in tapped waters. The Cimino-Vico volcanic area constitutes a complex hydrogeological system including several perched aquifers and a continuous basal aquifer in the volcanites,

The knowledge of flow and transport phenomena in fractured rocks is very important in hydrogeologic engineering in order to optimize clean up and monitoring strategies, to carry out risk assessment and to manage interventions in aquifers. Recently, understanding, characterizing and modeling physical and chemical interactions within fractured aquifers has acquired increasing importance, especially with regard to the question of water resources development and groundwater contamination. Sometimes the equival

The management and protection of water resources in karst environment require detailed knowledge of the aquifer system which can be obtained through a multidisciplinary approach, including not only hydrogeological/structural assessment, but also the use of tools not commonly used in hydrogeology, as the isotope ratios. In the present work some examples of isotopic applications on karst aquifers are discussed in relation to hydrogeological studies carried out in the Carrione Stream, Frigido River, and Vers

Hydrographs of the Caposele karst spring (Campania, Southern Italy) during the recession period have been analysed for last several years. A straight line was fitted to a semilogarithmic plot (log-discharge versus time), and the recession coefficient (the slope of the line generated from the equation) was calculated for each year considered. It has been found that the recession coefficient has positive a high correlation with discharge at the beginning of the recession period. For basal spring, this hydraul

We are witnessing an increasing concentration of the human population in coastal areas on a global scale. This trend is associated with a growing demand for water, which is satisfied mainly by using local water resources and groundwater in particular. The phenomenon of seawater intrusion is therefore becoming a more serious problem for most coastal aquifers, whose water resources are obviously at risk of being subject to considerable degradation of quality and quantity. The problem is particularly relevant
