Notes: Changes in sea level during Earth History induced important geomorphic and sedimentary processes. Porous, fissural or karst media developed according to changing sea levels: Quaternary glacio-eustatism and Messinian Deep Desiccated basin in Mediterranean. The influence of eustatism is not restricted to coastal areas. Its impact extended into the inner parts of the continents, even up to the remote mountain chains as valley base level changed. Coastal aquifers are located in high population density areas where freshwater resources will be one of the main priorities in the near future. However, their exploitation is often hindered by pollution, salt contamination, geometric configuration or complex behaviour for karsts. The Cannes Water Symposium gathers together worldwide actors in water management. A session will be dedicated to this topic. Proceedings will be published in a special issue (geodinamica Actac). Official languages are English and French, translation will be provided.
