Hydrogeology / Water Resources Management

The project group Hydrogeology & Water Resources Management is dedicated to effects of land use and climate changes on water and material balances. Another scope are river basin management problems in post-mining landscapes due to implementation of the EU Water Framework Directive. We are further committed to questions and model couplings on the effects of floods on groundwater in urban areas.
