Environmental geology

Environmental geology is closely associated with the inter-relationship of people and nature, and the consequences of natural and man-made environmental changes at local, regional and global scales.

Key questions in environmental geology and environmental geochemistry revolve around the sustainable exploitation of the Earth’s resources.

Important topics which we are researching are:

  • The spreading of pollutants in groundwater or rivers
  • Long-term effects of subterranean storage of CO2
  • Sediments’ reactions with, and influence of, groundwater chemistry
  • Human influences on climate from local to global scale.
