Groundwater processes

Field measurement is vital to obtain accurate measurements of groundwater quality.

This team researches hydrological processes at a range of scales by combining existing and new techniques to improve understanding and predictive capabilities in the context of environmental and societal change. Areas of study include agrochemicals in aquifers, groundwater–surface water interaction, groundwater recharge, as well as the impacts of environmental (including climate) change, such as groundwater flooding. We investigate the impacts of physical, chemical and biological processes on the movement of water and solutes. This can be from the surface to the water table; as groundwater flow in an aquifer; and as the subsequent discharge to wells, streams and the ground surface.
