Project

Arsenic Transport in Groundwater

Publisher

Supervisor

Location

Greater Copenhagen area

Arsenic contamination of groundwater is a problem of enormous relevance worldwide. Drinking water contaminated by arsenic causes serious human health effects. The transport of arsenic in aquifer systems is controlled by complex biogeochemical processes, surface/solution reactions and electrostatic interactions that are still poorly understood. The aim of this project is to investigate the impact of pH, Coulombic interactions and surface complexation of arsenic in porous media. The project will entail both experimental work in controlled laboratory flow-through setups and reactive transport simulations based on innovative modeling techniques.   

Requirements

The ideal candidate should have an interest on subsurface processes, groundwater flow, contaminant transport, aquatic chemistry, experimental and/or modeling investigation

Technical University of Denmark

For almost two centuries DTU, Technical University of Denmark, has been dedicated to fulfilling the vision of H.C. Ørsted – the father of electromagnetism – who founded the university in 1829 to develop and create value using the natural sciences and the technical sciences to benefit society.


Today, DTU is ranked as one of the foremost technical universities in Europe, continues to set new records in the number of publications, and persistently increases and develops our partnerships with industry, and assignments accomplished by DTU’s public sector consultancy.
