The MAR Portal contains the Global MAR Inventory, an inventory of over 1200 sites where Managed Aquifer Recharge is or has been implemented. The Global MAR Inventory includes information on site name, MAR type, year of scheme deployment, the source of infiltration water, the final use of abstracted water, as well as the main objectives of the project. The data shown in this portal have been made available by INOWAS (TU Dresden, Germany and funded by the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research) and the DEMEAU project (European Union FP7 project consortium). More information on the Global MAR Inventory project and its partners can be found or in the following publication: Stefan C. & Ansems N. (2017) Web-based global inventory of managed aquifer recharge applications. Sustain. Water Resour. Manag. https://doi.org/10.1007/s40899-017-0212-6.

The Global MAR Inventory can be downloaded here
