Research Focus

Interactions between geogene and anthropogene processes are increasingly in the focus of environmental geology. Environmental sciences are becoming more and more important for the society. Thus, research - and, maybe of even greater importance - teaching of environmental geology is an upcoming task for geologists.

The main topics of my research are:

  • hydrogeology in populated regions (e.g. drinking water supply and pollution in densely populated alpine valleys)
  • hard rock aquifers in the alpine environment with a special focus on natural tracers
  • hydrochemistry and isotope hydrology of abandoned coal mines 
  • didactics in environmental geology
