When, where, how? - Identifying causes of hydrogeological impacts in underground constructions

Construction of underground facilities often implies impact of groundwater levels, which leads to subsidence-related damage, impact of objects with high nature-values, impact of groundwater and geothermal heat wells and mobilization of pollutants. These negative impacts are in turn associated with high costs. This project aims to develop more effective and correct methods using both data-driven and process-based models for assessment of groundwater impact and its causes. The developed methods will make traceable the extent to which a certain infrastructure project perturbs the groundwater in time and space.This will reduce uncertainties associated with the cause of an impact which allows for timely mitigation measures at the correct location and time before high costs arise.
