Short summary
We have developed a method to assess hydrological impacts of future potential global change (GC) scenarios in a coastal aquifer, the Plana Oropesa-Torreblanca aquifer. Quantity and quality issues are simultaneously considered. It includes the generation of potential GC scenarios involving different sources of uncertainty and an integrated modelling framework to assess their impacts. It is a valuable tool to improve our aquifer knowledge and to help in the analysis of management strategies.
