IGE – HyDRIMZ team

The HyDRIMZ team aims at contributing to a better understanding of the processes that control mass and energy transfers as well as the transformations and impacts of the solid and dissolved matter in the earth’s critical zone at different spatial and temporal scales.

The research group studies the transfer of water, energy and contaminants in the critical zone with special focus on exchanges between rivers, vadose zone, atmosphere and aquifers. It has specific expertise in soil physics and transfer in porous media and develops experimental and modelling approaches for the investigation of flow and pollutants transfer at several scales ranging from the pore, column, parcel, watershed, etc.).

All types of contaminants are investigated, including heavy metals, organics, pharmaceuticals, microorganisms.
