Creating groundwater by Building with Nature

We explored the global potential for growing groundwater resources by protecting eroding sandy coastlines. See our paper in ScientificReports!

Sand Engine

The Sand Engine: a large dynamic beach nourishement with a primary objective to protect the coast. Within the sand engine and its hinterland, fresh groundwater reserves develop that float on top of the undrelying salt groundwater. We explored to what extent these solutions can be applied globally.
