Chemical hydrogeology

@ Virginia Tech

The Chemical Hydrogeology Group in the Department of Geosciences at Virginia Tech conducts integrative, cross-disciplinary research on solutes in Earth’s water. We use field, computational and laboratory techniques to examine and quantify the the transport of chemicals in surface- and groundwater Our goals are to advance understanding of the complex processes that influence water quality and to provide innovative solutions for improving the quality of Earth’s water resources.
