Karst aquifers represent important but very vulnerable sources for water supply to a significant
part of the earth’s population. For sustainable use of these resources, development of integrated
management tools based on numerical groundwater models is required. In principle karst aquifers are
characterized by the presence of two distinct flow domains: the limestone matrix and the karst conduits.
