The tasks of the department consist of investigations on chemical processes between soil and water phases in the unsaturated zone and in the groundwater zone, natural processes caused by human activity (e.g. pollution). The different investigations are performed partly for research purposes, partly as applied investigations on environmental conditions for public authorities and private clients. The department conducts advanced laboratories in connection with pesticide survey (groundwater dating, microbiology, environmental chemistry, immunochemistry). Futhermore, the department manages the hydrochemical and geochemical data bases, and advising on geochemical conditions is carring out.
