Based on an extensive set of Raman measurements and successful preparation of SERS active substrates Nima successfully defended his thesis "Nanoparticles and Light" at the Institute of Hydrochemistry.

Stress sensitivity of porosity and permeability under varying hydrostatic stress conditions for different carbonate rock types of the geothermal Malm reservoir in Southern Germany

Productivity enhancement of geothermal wells through fault zones: Efficient numerical evaluation of a parameter space for the Upper Jurassic aquifer of the North Alpine Foreland Basin

Im Rahmen der Vortragsreihe "Klimanotstand München" spricht Dr. Kai Zosseder am 11.05.2021 um 19.00 Uhr über den Ausbau und das Potenzial der Tiefen und oberflächenahen Geothermie im Großraum München und ihren Beitrag zur kommunalen Wärmewende. Die Veranstatung ist mit…

Water chemical data and environmental isotope analyses of δD, δ18O and 87Sr/86Sr that were obtained from groundwater of 24 deep Upper Jurassic geothermal wells together with few analyses of noble gases (3He/4He, 40Ar/36Ar) were interpreted. Data show a hydrochemical zoning of the…

Based on extensive data from the high temperature heat storage test in the carbonates of the Upper Jurassic in the Molasse Basin, a mathematical framework to describe the effects of the hydrochemical reactions on the hydraulic performance of such systems was developed in cooperation…

Here we work on technical solutions and the understanding of biogeochemical processes within the N- and Fe-cycles to develop a cutting-edge method to remove excess nitrate from groundwater.   Clara Duffner, Anja Wunderlich, Michael Schloter*, Stefanie Schulz and Florian Einsiedl*…

An Quanshun is visiting the Chair of Hydrogeology for a one-year research stay. He is doing his PhD thesis at the China Agricultural University, Beijing, supervised by Prof. Pan Canping. During his research stay, Quanshun works on the further development on dynamic plant uptake…

Based on maybe the most complete and extensive data set on scalings in geothermal systems, Berhard successfully defended his thesis at the Institute of Hydrochemistry.

The Chair's quaternary hydrogeological datasets and potential evaluations on the thermal use of groundwater have been published on the City's main geoportal.

New scientific paper with the Research Unit for Environmental Genomics at the Helmholtz Center Munich

Using Thermal Springs to Quantify Deep Groundwater Flow and Its Thermal Footprint in the Alps and a Comparison With North American Orogens

This paper is the first one in a planned series of papers that focuses on the hydrogeology and water chemistry of the deep Upper Jurassic groundwater system in the South German Molasse Basin. This aquifer represents a drinking water resource for cities, but is also important for its…

The properties of nanoparticles in the environment might be masked by other molecules covering the nanoparticle surface. The dynamic changes were recorded with Raman microscopy. It turns out, that the most stable/attractive coating is replacing previous coatings.

The Chair of Hydrogeology has recently published a paper in Biogeosciences exploring the the link between the anaerobic methane oxidation with nitrate and the anaerobic ammonium oxidation (anammox) in a stratified lake. The occurrence of the two coupled biogeochemical pathways in…
