Abstract:
The research group Groundwater Modeling of Ghent University studies the movement and quality of groundwater, as well as the interaction of groundwater with the rock. Within this framework the group performs research on the flow of groundwater, the amount of groundwater that can be extracted from a layer, the composition of groundwater, chemical reactions and pollution due to human activities, etc.

The group tackles the following topics within the field of coastal hydrology:
- Circulation of salt groundwater;
- The propagation of tides;
- Fresh-salt water distribution in coastal areas;
- Water quality in coastal areas;
- Water quality as a tracer in groundwater layers in coastal areas;
- Ground water extraction management in the Belgian coastal areas;
- The influence of artificial inlets;
- Management options for dunes;
- Heat transport beneath the dunes, beach and sea;
- Impact of the artificial infiltration of an aquifer in the dunes;
- Artificial replenishment of groundwater in dune areas;
- Impact of climate change on the coastal hydrology.

The research group Groundwater Modeling participates in international projects including a project in Qatar regarding the environmental assessment and management options for the Abu Nakhla sewage pond.
