Water Resources & Drinking Water

Our research concentrates on physical and chemical processes in groundwater, surface water and drinking water. We conduct basic and applied research on water resources, water contaminants, and water treatment to contribute to sustainable water management from local to nationwide scales.

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)
