My research has been focused on the development of integrated approaches to determine karst groundwater vulnerability considering the negative effects induced by current anthropocentric activities in karst by considering solute transport as additional indicator of risk/vulnerability.

Dolines are important features strongly influencing the outcomes of groundwater vulnerability maps, subsidence risk and land use studies. Their relationship with subsurface features like epikarst, stresses the importance of doline mapping for environmental and hydrological management strategies. Current methodologies to map dolines from elevation m...
Karst aquifers are a major source of drinking water with intrinsic features that increase the pollution risk from anthropogenic and natural impacts. In Yucatan, Mexico, groundwater is the sole source of drinking water, also acting as receptor of untreated wastewater due to the low regional coverage of sewer systems. To protect karst groundwater, vu...
Karst groundwater vulnerability maps are important tools for the development of groundwater management and protection strategies. However, current methodologies do not always match regional characteristics and parameter adaptations are necessary. In addition, other important processes such as dilution and aquifer residence time are not included in...
This report intends to demonstrate the potential of managed aquifer recharge through the identification and dissemination of several success stories throughout the LAC region, showing the great diversity of applications, water sources and MAR techniques involved.
Groundwater vulnerability maps are important decision support tools for water resource protection against pollution and helpful in minimizing environmental damage. However, these tools carry a high subjectivity along the multiple steps taken for the development of such maps. Additionally , the theoretical model on which they are based does not cons...
Algunas aproximaciones al trabajo en el Karst de Yucatán, desde los índices de vulnerabilidad, el análisis multicriterio y el modelado numérico realizadas de forma colaborativa con la TU Dresden y diversos actores mexicanos, en el marco de las charlas mensuales de Jo.in Hydrocafe - IAH-GE https://www.aih-ge.org/jo-in-hydrocafe/ Jo.in Hydrocafe Te...

Groundwater is a very important resource since water volumes stored underground are much larger compared with those located at the surface, such as rivers and lakes. Aquifers supply a high percentage of freshwater for human consumption as well as supplying economic activities like industry, agriculture, and livestock production. Among them, karst a...
The development of vulnerability maps is considered to be the first step in promoting awareness, development of protection strategies and sustainable use of karst aquifers. Nevertheless, high subjectivity of current methodologies for groundwater vulnerability assessment leads to contradictory results when different models are applied over the same...
Managed aquifer recharge represents a valuable instrument for sustainable water resources management. The con- cept implies purposeful infiltration of surface water into underground for later recovery or environmental benefits. Over decades, MAR schemes were successfully installed worldwide for a variety of reasons: to maximize the natu- ral storag...
The aim of this research is the development of an integrated vulnerability approach for karst areas. Inclusion of global change factors is highly necessary for a more realistic approach either for actual or future scenarios. To understand the pollution threat, concentration of pollutants (e.g. nitrates) and their residence time in the system must be included in a vulnerability analysis.
