Integrated geophysical studies were carried out around the brackish spring of Rina, Kalimnos island, SW Greece, in order to determine the special hydrogeological conditions at the survey area. A high-resolution geophysical investigation comprising electrical tomography, seismic refraction and very low-frequency (VLF) electromagnetic induction methods was carried out on a site of saline water contamination. The geological and tectonic settings of the area are evaluated for clarifying the hydrogeological conditions. Further, the saline water intrusion is investigated and its depth is determined. Thus, the limit of fresh water production rate not causing potential pollution problem can be estimated.
