Welcome to the Department of Hydrogeology

Hydrogeology deals with groundwater and its interactions with rocks and minerals, it is about movement, quality and quantity. A part of hydrogeology is also the protection of groundwater against contamination from various sources, the detection of already existing contamination and the exploration of possibilities for soil and water remediation

Research in this area includes observation, measurement and sampling in the field, analysis in laboratories and digital modeling.

The projects in our working group take place around the globe, but do not forget the problems on our own doorstep. Our main research focus is on hydrochemistry and isotopes as well as on monitoring and modeling.
