The scientific basis of the Geohydrology research 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 recent activity has been geological storage of CO2, where we have been working, at the leadership level, in several EU funded projects.
- Special Edition on ‘CO2 residual trapping experiments at Heletz, Israel pilot injection site, in International Journal of Greenhouse Gas Control, Sept 2020.
- Extensive field campaign to measure coupled hydro-mechanical processes continuously in time at great depth carried out at COSC-1 borehole, Åre, in collaboration with LBNL, USA, June 2019.
- Our visiting professor Chin-Fu Tsang gives out the prize named after him during the CouFrac 2018 Conference in Wuhan
- Auli Niemi receives Uppsala University’s most distinguished science prize (In Swedish).
