Track: Environmental Management
Authors: Alexandru Vasile
EU has implemented agri-environmental programs to minimize the negative environmental impacts of agriculture. This study investigates the correlation between the implementation of these measures and the groundwater quality in Baden Wurttemberg. Groundwater quality data from the monitoring network is used in a geo-statistical methodology to generate maps of pollutant distribution from 1990 to 2012. Using ArcGIS and R, the correlation between the evolutions of these two phenomenon is investigated.
