Hydrogeosciences

@ Virginia Tech


The Hydrogeosciences Group in the Department of Geosciences at Virginia Tech conducts integrative, cross-disciplinary research on Earth’s water. We use field, computational and laboratory techniques to examine and quantify the flow of groundwater, aquifer mechanics, and the transport of chemicals, heat, and gas in the subsurface. Our goals are to advance understanding of the complex processes that influence water and to provide innovative solutions for enhancing the quantity and quality of Earth’s water and energy resources.
