Geohydrology Research Group

Fritjof Fagerlund working in the control room at Heletz site

The scientific basis of the Geohydrology Research Group is the study of subsurface flow, transport and related processes, such as heterogeneity effects and related uncertainty, multiphase and coupled transport and aqueous geochemistry. Our applications range from energy research to contaminant transport and remediation. We work in the field, in the laboratory and by modelling. A major present activity is geological stor­age of CO2, where we are working, at the leadership level, in several EU funded projects as well as in projects in Sweden and the Baltic region.
