Established at the Department of Earth Sciences in October 2012, the Hydrogeology Group has a special focus on fresh water resources under changing environmental and climatic conditions. The research projects are related to the impact of climate change and anthropogenic pressure on hydrological and hydrogeological systems on different scales. Beside studies related to environmental and societal aspects of water resources management, the research group is also involved in major construction works. The research group, led by Professor Roland Barthel, consists nowadays of two researchers (Åsa Fransson and Markus Giese), three PhD students (Ezra Haaf, Michelle Nygren and Pramod Surendran) and B.Sc./M.Sc. students contributing to different groundwater-related research projects in Sweden and abroad.
