Welcome to the former division for Land and Water Resources Engineering!
The division of Land and Water Resources Engineering was previously a division of the Department of Sustainable Development, Environmental Science and Engineering (SEED)
SEED's web site
The Division of Land and Water Resources Engineering focuses on research leading to sustainable and effective utilization of natural resources. Our competence ranges from modelling of biogeochemical and physical processes to treatment techniques for pollution prevention as to environmental resources. Sustainable use of natural resources as well as ecologically sound land-use and urban development are urgent questions in relation to climate change, increasing competition for water, drinking-water supply and land and water pollution.
We want to contribute to fulfil the demands of the society for a sustainable and effective utilization of natural resources. Our scientific base is a thorough scientific understanding combined with technical knowledge where natural resources are studied in a social perspective. Knowledge and methodology for the care and use of natural resources includes all scales from the local to the regional and the global.
The research areas of the division:
Engineering Geology and Geophysics
