The research group owns a well-equipped lab for determination of transport parameters of chemicals in soils:

  • diffusion chambers for measuring diffusion of oxygen and pollutants in the gas phase
  • permeability device to determine air permeability of porous media
  • GC equipment for the quantification of constituents in the soil gas phase
  • (-AAS equipment for the quantification of metals in soils)
  • laboratory column tests of various sizes to determine feasibility of soil remediation under realistic flow conditions
  • large-scale lysimeter facilities to determine water flow and solute dispersion parameters in undisturbed soils
  • tensiometers and TDR equipment to determine soil water movement and non-reactive solute transport in soils
  • field setups for determining solute transport and water flow, wireless dataconnection to desktop computer
