Research Projects

The project investigates what measures are most effective in influencing a river corridor so that river restoration and groundwater flow systems can help to mitigate the effects of floods and droughts.
This project facilitates the exchange of data, maps and information on geogenic contaminants (focussing on arsenic and fluoride) via the web-based Groundwater Assessment Platform (GAP)
