Prof. Nico Goldscheider war am 11./12. November 2022 als Vortragsredner zu einem Symposium der Österreichischen Akademie der Wissenschaften in Wien mit dem Titel "Highlights of Geoscientific Cave Research" eingeladen und hat dort einen Vortrag über Karst und Wasser gehalten. In diesem Zusammenhang entstand auch ein Fernsehbeitrag fürs österreichische Fernsehen.

Xinyang Fan is a PhD student at the University of Melbourne and the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology in Germany. Her research focuses on quantifying the effects of climate change and variations in groundwater levels, recharge, and discharge in Australia and Germany. She is particularly interested in using statistical and conceptual modeling approaches to examine groundwater availability under anthropogenic climate change, both from a past perspective and through the assessment of climate change scenarios.
In her presentation at EGU 2022, she presented a study from her doctoral dissertation quantifying the sensitivity of groundwater levels and recharge to climate variability in Australia.
In the current U.S. News University Ranking, KIT ranks first in water research and geosciences in Germany and 48th (water) and 52nd (geo) internationally. This is excellent news also for Karlsruhe Hydrogeology, because hydrogeology is the interface between water and geo research.Link_more
The Federal Environment Agency (UBA) has named groundwater the water body type of the year 2022. Not only ecosystems depend on a sufficient amount of clean groundwater, but also 70% of the drinking water obtained in Germany comes from groundwater and spring water. At the AGW, several research projects have been dealing with the quality and availability of this valuable resource for years, among others in the blue cave system.

On Tuesday evening, 12.03.2019 at 9 pm, the WDR broadcast the Quarks programme about caves. In the program Prof. Dr. Nico Goldscheider and Dr. Zhao Chen performed. Our topics in the article "Cave Groundwater" are research in the Blauhöhle and the Blautopf, and the World Karstaquifer Map (WOKAM).zum Beitrag über unsere Forschung
At KIT, the "World Karst Aquifer Map" has been developed in an international project. The uniform map is to improve the protection and management of karst aquifers.zur Pressemitteilung
