Geohydrology Research Group
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.
Important EU projects on CO2 geological storage:
- 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 (sv).
- Special Issue of MUSTANG / Heletz is on Int. Journal of Greenhouse Gas Control
- Videos from our key CO2 injection research site, the Heletz, Israel (in new window): Part 1, Part 2.
- CO2 geological storage – Recent and ongoing EU projects
- CO2 geological storage – Studies in Sweden and in the Baltic Sea region
- Flow in fractured rocks and deep hydrogeological systems
- Non-Aqueous Phase Liquids
- Nitrogen removal in mining environments
- Nano-particles in the subsurface
- Environmental effects of shale gas fracking
- In-situ remediation of PFASs based on sorption methods (StopPFAS)
