This final report summarizes work carried out by a partnership consisting of scientists from UK, Estonia, Denmark, The Netherlands, Belgium, France, Spain, Portugal and Switzerland under the Fourth Framework Programme, contract ENV4-CT94-0156, of the European Union. The format of the report reflects the country contributions as required by the Commission, but also draws together the main results at the European scale. Chapter 1 provides an introduction to the aims and approach of the project. Chapters 2 to 10 report the detailed regional case studies carried out by the individual partners. Chapters 11 to 17 build on the regional studies to develop key aspects and themes of the study and to take a wider view of the subject at a continental scale. Finally, Chapters 18 and 19 draw out the overall conclusions of the project and discuss the implications for effective long-term management of coastal palaeowater aquifers. Not all of the large amount of data collected during the project are recorded here. Should clarification be sought the reader is asked in the first instance to contact BGS as co-ordinators of the project. The results of the project are destined to be published in the open scientific literature and popular channels. However, a major part of the material reported here will, following appropriate peer review, be published in early 2000 as a Special Publication of the Geological Society of London.
