- ... Malia’s coastal aquifer supplies water for domestic and irrigation purposes most of northern part of Heraklion prefecture (central Crete). The extensive exploitation of groundwater since the late 1960s has resulted in a continual decline in groundwater level and significant degradation in groundwater quality, due to salinity intrusion in the coastal aquifer. Moreover, the aquifer will likely to ex ...

- ... Precipitation plays a significant role to energy exchange and material circulation in Earth’s surface system. According to numerous studies, traditional point measurements based on rain gauge stations are unable to reflect the spatial variation of precipitation effectively. On the other hand, satellite remote sensing could solve this limitation by directly providing spatial distribution of rainfal ...
