Home Institution: Marine Geology Seafloor Surveying Msida
Host Institution: The MarCoast Ecosystems Integration Lab, at the Technion — Israel Institute of Technology
Duration of stay(days): 15
Objectives: The primary goal of this STSM is to collect and prepare data that will be utilized to assess the Offshore Freshened Groundwater (OFG) potential on the Israeli continental shelf. The expected technical outputs include a data repository including seismic and other geophysical data, geological cross-sections, borehole and water quality data, a summary of the depositional environment of the Israeli continental shelf and its implications for the potential reservoir distribution, and a definition of model domain for subsequent 3D numerical shelf modelling of groundwater salinity distribution on the continental shelf.
