We are working with researchers in Bolivia to understand the aquifer systems in an area there, to avoid overexploitation and to protect the groundwater resource.
Hosted by us but being a Swedish national resource, a heavy core drill rig and other equipment is available to researchers and others for scientific work.
Ongoing research: 3D-mapping of rock using geophysics, drones and a geologist's eyes.
At the department, we do research on non destructive methods for test and monitoring of structures and construction materials such as concrete, asphalt, etc.
Making the underground transparent facilitates urban development! We participate in Sweden's largest geotechnical research project TRUST.
The Pipestatus project aims at developing methods for non-excavation condition assessments of water- and district heating pipes.
Lund university coordinates and participates in a project aiming at improving methods and methodology for optimized planning and monitoring of in situ remediation of perchloroethylene; 2000 sites in Sweden may be affected.
The National Core Drillrig Riksriggen is a key component in the I-EDDA project, where resources and innovations are shared within the EU, to develop future exploration drilling techniques.
