Introduction: Vulnerability Maps Based on Electrical Conductivity Concepts for vulnerability maps

The vulnerability of an aquifer can be defined by “How severe are the likely consequences of pollution loading?” (Lobo-Ferreira, 1997). The lateral distribution of the vulnerability, as shown in vulnerability maps, is an important parameter for groundwater management and planning. To ensure the water supply for coming generations, vulnerability mapping should not be restricted to areas with aquifers actually in use. This is the message of the new groundwater regulations of the European Community Commission which require wide mapping of aquifers, water quality, and vulnerability.
