This report is the second deliverable for Work Package 4 of the VoGERA project, “Vulnerability of Shallow Groundwater Resources to Deep Sub-surface Energy Related Activities”. This project is part of the Groundwater Theme of the EU’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme “GeoERA” project, under grant agreement No 731166. This work package firstly set out the conceptual framework for vulnerability characterisation of shallow groundwater to deep sub-surface energy activities. Building on these conceptual models, a methodology called 3D Groundwater Vulnerability (3D GWV) for characterising the vulnerability of groundwater resources to deep sub-surface energy related activities is presented in this report. The methodology has been implemented in a spreadsheet tool and this report provides the background information for applying the tool for vulnerability assessments.
