MLR Key Laboratory of Groundwater Science and Engineering

[ 05-06-2015 ]

The laboratory is supported by the Institute of Hydrology and Environmental Geology, CAGS and is to meet country’s pressing needs of sustainable utilization of groundwater through conducting the cuttingedge basic research and innovations with respect to circular evolution and sustainability of groundwater. The lab also boosts domestic and international cooperation and fosters an environment favorable to innovative talents and provides strong scientific and technical support to safe utilization of regional groundwater and solving problems related to land resources and environment.

The laboratory started two research projects in 2013, both supported by the IAEA, “Recharge and hydrodynamic response to intensive groundwater abstraction in the North China Plain, assessed by repetitive analysis of isotopic tracers” and “Age-dating of very old groundwaters in confined aquifers of the coastal plain in the North China Plain”.
