Hydrogeology at the University of Kansas
Hydrogeology at the University of Kansas is listed among the top programs in The United States by the National Ground Water Association (NGWA top programs).

Here are some of the reasons why:

Breadth of research. Our expertise and research projects range from aquifer characterization to carbon sequestration, from groundwater remediation to metals in lake sediments
Wide ranging faculty expertise. Our faculty have expertise in such topics as water resource evaluation, contaminant hydrogeology, carbon sequestration, aqueous geochemistry, environmental geophysics, groundwater remediation, biodegradation of organics and geobiology of metals, and groundwater modeling.
Strong links with complementary researchers. The hydrogeology program in the Department of Geology is allied with the hydrogeologists and other groundwater specialists at the Kansas Geological Survey (KGS). We also have collaborations nationally and internationally with leading researchers in Canada, China, Australia, and Europe
A variety of courses covering all aspects of hydrogeology. We offer courses ranging from classical, physical hydrogeology to contaminant transport, aspects of geomicrobiology, environmental geophysics, and geochemistry including specialized topics in spectroscopy
