Availability of clean water to sustain human existence is one of the major global challenges immediately and in the future. Water, and in particular fresh water is therefore a crucial resource to understand and protect
At the Department of Geoscience we have always had a strong focus on investigation of groundwater and its interaction with surface water. Where is the water; how is it flowing; how well is it protected, and how much can be extracted in a sustainable manner. These are some of the questions we work with. A key research focus has evolved around geophysical investigations of the subsurface where large areas are mapped using helicopters or towed instruments at the surface.
