Person in charge Prof. Dr. Martin Sauter -
Brief description of the organisation The Chair of Applied Geology at the Geosciences Centre in Göttingen was established in 2002 with a special focus on the hydrogeology of fractured aquifers. The Centre is now recognised to be a renowned institution in this field, placing an emphasis on subsurface investigation and characterization, modelling, exploitation of geothermal energy, hydro-geochemistry, risk assessment and remediation of contamination as a result of industrial activities.

The Chair of Applied Geology at the Geosciences Centre will provide:
 volume oriented characterisation of fluid – solid rock contact surface in the field by push-pull single borehole multi tracer experiments;
 Determination of bulk temperature distribution in the fractured-porous rock volume at the borehole scale;
 Combined and coupled simulation of hydraulic, solute and heat transport processes at the borehole scale;
 Evaluation of hydraulic experiments at Horstberg site;
 Design and evaluation of laboratory experiments with scCO2.
