RESPONSE – Reactive transport modelling of point source contamination in soils and groundwater

The RESPONSE project deals with the transport of point source contaminants in soils and groundwater. Point source contaminations result from historical or current activities and constitute a variety in forms, areas and contaminants involved (e.g. landfills, industrial facilities, storage tanks, disposal of hazardous waste).

QuakeRecNankai

This project aims to reconstruct past earthquakes along the Nankai Trough, south central Japan. The project combines fieldwork, advanced sedimentological and geochemical analyses, innovative dating techniques, tsunami inundation modeling and hazard assessment, with government policy support and public outreach.

H3O – The Campine

The general scope of this project is to solve existing connection problems between the Flemish and Dutch geological and hydrogeological layer cake models in the Campine Region by producing cross-border, up-to-date, three-dimensional geological and hydrogeological models of the Cenozoic deposits, based on existing (hydro-) geological data.
