The implementation of the Remote Sensing in the hydrogeological characterization of the Basin of the Segura River through Remote Thermal Tomography has permitted to determine the areas of a major probability of the aquifer zones presence, as well as the areas of important géothermie potential. Additionally there were elaborated proposals of the modification of the hydrogeological zones limits that would permit to improve the configuration of the surrounding water masses, as well as to locate the sea water intrusion zones and the groundwater discharge zones. Remote Sensing, Remote Thermal Tomography, The Basin of the Segura River, Hydrology, Geothermal, Sea water Intrusion.

Many of the decisive battles waged during the six-year war between Spain and Napoleon Bonaparte's armies, exactly two centuries ago, took place around the country's bridges. Numerous bridges were destroyed and this caused a considerable setback in the early development of communications in a country with a road network that had only been rationalized and developed just half a century earlier.

A methodology is set out for quantifying the financial resources required in order to restore the quality of urban pavement that have deteriorated over time. A set of road surfaces, or road surfaces in a particular area of a town, which may be the whole town, is chosen and a sample is taken to represent it with a certain error margin and confidence level. The defects in all the road surfaces forming the chosen sample are analysed and, more importantly, quantified, and the findings are extrapolated to the total population. The methodology presented also allows preventive maintenance to be scheduled in any one area of a city. Finally a road surface quality index is established allowing us to analyse quantified variations in road surface quality over time. Thus we can establish a means of measuring the quality of maintenance carried out on our road surfaces. Key words: Road surface, Street surface, Maintenance, Preventive maintenance, Maintenance cost, Maintenance quality, Quality index.
