Welcome to the home of the Hydrogeology Group.

The Hydrogeology Group is led by Prof. Dr. Oliver S. Schilling, who holds the joint professorship in hydrogeology at the Department of Environmental Sciences of University of Basel and the Department Water Resources and Drinking Water of Eawag, the Swiss Federal Institute of Aquatic Science and Technology.

The Hydrogeology Group consist of the Hydrogeology Research Group (lead: Prof. Dr. Oliver S. Schilling) and the Applied and Environmental Geology working group (lead: PD. Dr. Jannis Epting).

We are also active member of the Swiss Water Earth-Systems PhD School.

2024 Conferences

“The hydrogeology research group is proud to announce that it is co-organizing this year’s IAH World Groundwater Congress, which is taking place in Davos from 8.-13. September. We are convening three sessions, one on Advances in inverse modelling, data assimilation and uncertainty quantification for hydrogeological simulations”, one on “Groundwater temperatures in the context of global warming and anthropogenic influences - risks and opportunities”, and one on “Innovative field and tracer methods””

2024 publication

“The hydrogeology research group is currently editing a special edition in Frontiers in Water onAdvances in Integrated Surface—Subsurface Hydrological Modeling”, together with Prof. Matteo Camporese of Uni Padova and Prof. Hoori Ajami of UC Riverside. The submission window is now open and we invite relevant contributions to the topic.”

1.1.2024 team

«It is our great pleasure to welcome Dr. Arkadiusz Glogowski to our team in Basel. Dr. Glogowski holds a PhD in Climate Sciences from Wrocław University of Environmental and Life Sciences and is an expert on bioclimate modelling and agricultural hydrogeology. He is leading the research in our SNSF-NCN (Weave)-funded research project "Sustainable nitrogen fertilization for agricultural crops developed based on open lab and field experiments with integrated hydrological modelling in near-real-time" (SNSF project 216926), which we conduct in close collaboration with Wrocław University of Environmental and Life Sciences, Poland.»

1.12.2023 event

The hydrogeology research group hosted the Annual Conference of the Swiss Water-Earth Systems PhD School at the University of Basel. It was a great success and we very much enjoyed meeting everyone again and learning about the progress of all the different, water-related PhD theses going on in Switzerland. (photo)
