  • Abstract Groundwater in Chalk catchments is a major resource that also helps support internationally important habitats and ecosystems. Its dual porosity and dual permeability properties, coupled with large-scale structural features (such as hard rock layers and marls), produce a highly complex hydrogeological system. Recent impacts from groundwater flooding as well as vulnerability to drought have raised questions over the ability of traditional approaches to model these aquifers. Current work… CONTINUE READING
