despre noi

Research at CCIAS (the Groundwater Engineering Research Centre focuses on the characterization of permeable media using hydraulic and hydrochemical data and on the human impact on groundwater.

Applications include groundwater resources evaluation, urban groundwater, groundwater-infrastructure interaction, aquifer management, vulnerability assessment, ground pollution control, underground waste storage, and vadose zone analysis.

Methods used are both regional and local in scale, of a quantitative nature, using flow and contaminant transport modeling. One part of the group develops geospatial data analysis and representation techniques and another one part works in data acquisition.

despre noi

CCIAS is currently coordinating or an active key partner in several national and European research projects using its Sedimentary media modeling platform for groundwater management in urban areas (SIMPA) as well as the FP7 project entitled Tailored Improvement of Brownfield Regeneration in Europe (TIMBRE).
