Using Thermal Springs to Quantify Deep Groundwater Flow and Its Thermal Footprint in the Alps and a Comparison With North American Orogens [mehr]

This paper is the first one in a planned series of papers that focuses on the hydrogeology and water chemistry of the deep Upper Jurassic groundwater system in the South German Molasse Basin. This aquifer represents a drinking water resource for cities, but is also important for... [mehr]

The properties of nanoparticles in the environment might be masked by other molecules covering the nanoparticle surface. The dynamic changes were recorded with Raman microscopy. It turns out, that the most stable/attractive coating is replacing previous coatings. [mehr]

The Chair of Hydrogeology has recently published a paper in Biogeosciences exploring the the link between the anaerobic methane oxidation with nitrate and the anaerobic ammonium oxidation (anammox) in a stratified lake. The occurrence of the two coupled biogeochemical pathways in... [mehr]

Most of the scales in geothermal facilities in the North Alpine Foreland Basin are carbonates and the community has developed a pretty good forensic understanding of the processes and hydrogeochemical conditions leading to the precipitates. What has been missing was a data based... [mehr]

uja_faultzones is a Python tool to quickly investigate the hydraulic influence of a fault zone on a geothermal wells flow regime and productivity index for a given set of reservoir properties. [mehr]

On the Limitations and Implications of Modeling Heat Transport in Porous Aquifers by Assuming Local Thermal Equilibrium, Water Resources Research [mehr]

Ripples are well known from sandy beaches and river sediments. The Geofluids group took a close look at cemented ripples from a geothermal power plant. Here, precipitates with ripple structures accumulated before the heat exchangers and caused additional downtime. The structures... [mehr]

Markus and his colleagues paper on the "Assessment of the heterogeneity of hydraulic properties in gravelly outwash plains: a regionally scaled sedimentological analysis in the Munich gravel plain, Germany" is now published in the Hydrogeology Journal.They used sedimentological... [mehr]
