Hydraulic Investigations in the Area of the New Construction Project "Starnberg Tunnel". The Chair of Hydrogeology has been commissioned to verify the groundwater flow directions resulting from numerical simulations through appropriate experimental investigations.
Targeted SDG: 11
On the origin of nitrate in a spring catchment area. Using stable isotope technique coupled with UV spectral sensors, tracer hydrogeology and modeling should help to identify nitrate sources, its origin and possible microbial conversion in the subsurface.
Targeted SDG: 6
End of March 2023, the project executing organization has approved the funding for our WaterMARk application. This project will be performed with different leading research institutions, the Queen's University Belfast, the University of California Davis and the University of Sao Paulo and focuses on Adaptive water resources management using Managed Aquifer Recharge.
Targeted SDG: 6
We are continuously cooperating with the University of the Bahamas (UB) and the Grand Bahama Utility Company (GBUC) on the island to evaluate groundwater quantity and quality concerning the current state and expected future developments.
The goal of this project is the technical implementation of a decentralized storage concept in existing aquifers that is capable of absorbing one or more flood peaks and releasing them to the receiving water with a very significant time delay or holding them for higher-value use.
In this subproject, the minimization of the drilling, exploration and production risk of hydrothermal geothermal energy in the Bavarian Molasse Basin, as well as sustainable reservoir management, are to be addressed in particular. (https://geothermie-allianz.de/en/home/)
In this project, which is part of the Geothermal-Alliance Bavaria, subproject "long-term. Ensuring sustainable thermal water production" the physical and hydrochemical measured values of characteristic plants are processed and examined for multivariate changes in order to discriminate and quantify natural and technically induced gradients.
The research objective of the GeoSPOT project is the creation of a hydrogeological and geothermal database to estimate and improve the geothermal potential of the shallow quaternary aquifer in the wider area of Augsburg. Furthermore, the extension of the 3D-geological lithofaciesmodel of Munich (GeoPot-project) for user-specific applications is carried out.
In this project, a low-cost, ultrasound-based sensor network for direct detection and determination of fouling and biofilms is developed for geothermal plants and open cooling circuits. The sensor network is supported by a self-learning predictive-maintenance algorithm that enables prediction of fouling formation based on hydrogeochemical simulations and models developed in the project.
Geothermal-DHC aims to address the integration of geothermal technologies to heating and cooling grids based on experiences from case studies across Europe. About 40 Institutions take part in this action. TUM is National Coordinator.
