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.
