The Hydrogeology, Biogeochemistry and Modelling Group offer new topics for Bachelor and Master Theses.

This paper proposes an approach to optimize the technical potential of thermal groundwater use by determining the optimal sizing and placement of extraction-injection well doublets. The approach quantifies the maximum technically achievable volume of extracted groundwater in a given area and, hence,…

In cooperation with „TUM Water Cluster“, the Chair of Hydrogeology presented a running project with focus on the development of a new strategy and method for improving the quality of nitrate-polluted groundwater ecosystems. The BMBF-founded project was presented to the visitors by a video-clip to…

On June 12, the TUM Sustainability Day took place on the Garching campus. Under the motto "MÜNCHNER WÄRMEWENDE - JETZT!", the geothermal energy group  participate with the aim of creating synergies and providing new impulses. They addressed the following topics: Workshop: "Munich's heat…

Internationalization has become one of the strengths of our Chair. Academic staff from all over the world forms our team. This internationality provides us with international experiences, which are used for the training of our students and to clarify open research questions. The great thing is that…

Zur Erstellung eines detaillierten 3D Bohrplatz-Modells wurden in Zusammenarbeit mit dem Referat für Klima- und Umweltschutz Drohnenaufnahmen des Bohrplatzes der MTU durch die Luftbildstelle der Stadt München gemacht. Das fertige Modell soll zukünftig zur Veranschaulichung einer in Entwicklung…

From April 15 to 19, 2024, the  EGU General Assembly 2024 geoscientists from around the world met in Vienna. Members of the chair of hydrogeology were responsible for two sessions and contributed with more than a dozen talks and posters to this exciting opportunity to share findings, connect and get…

Dissolved inorganic carbon has been hypothesized to stimulate microbial chemoautotrophic activity as a biological sink in the carbon cycle of deep subsurface environments. Here, we tested this hypothesis using quantitative DNA stable isotope probing of metagenome assembled genomes (MAGs) at multiple…
