Hydrogeology and Environmental Geology

Hydrogeology at the Ruhr-University Bochum focuses on teaching and researching water in the subsurface. We develop laboratory, field and numerical methods for this purpose. We are particularly interested in the flow of groundwater, hydrochemical reactions and the transport of natural and anthropogenically introduced water constituents. The aim is to explore methods that allow us to investigate and predict these processes in groundwater. Through our research, we want to contribute to the sustainable use of groundwater and aquifers.
