The main research interest is related to understanding groundwater functioning through the application of the Groundwater Flow System Methodology (GFSM). Techniques on aquifer test analysis have been developed applying the knowledge on groundwater hydraulics and geochemical-isotopic data responses. Surface (external) indicators that show groundwater functioning have been successfully applied. One practical application of this research is to control the water quality obtained through an extraction borehole. The GWFSM has also successfully been used to propose means of controlling: land subsidence, the disappearance of surface water bodies and vegetation, plain-land flooding, saline-groundwater inducement, groundwater response to changes in the climatic conditions, and chemical evolution.
