Hydrogeology is the science of groundwater and its interaction with rocks. In most parts of the world, groundwater is the quantitatively most important and qualitatively best drinking water resource. Hydrogeology deals with the occurrence, movement, quality, use and protection of groundwater. Our hydrogeological research includes observations, measurements and experiments in nature and in the laboratory as well as mathematical and numerical modelling. We cover the entire spectrum of groundwater research. Special focus is on karst and alpine hydrogeology, groundwater protection and management, marking & pumping tests, artificial intelligence & machine learning, groundwater & ecology as well as thermal groundwater use.
On Thursday, 15 October, the official handover of the decision on the project Nitrate Monitoring 4.0 - Intelligent Systems for Sustainable Reduction of Nitrate in Groundwater took place in Karlsruhe. The decision, worth 2.5 million euros, was presented by the Parliamentary State Secretary of the Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation and Nuclear Safety, Rita Schwarzelühr-Sutter. Dr. Tanja Liesch was on site for KIT along with other representatives of politics and the project partners.zur Pressemitteilung
