Groundwater study of Kurikka region goes international

Monday, February 5, 2018

Associate Prof. Martin Ross is starting a new collaboration with the Geological Survey of Finland who has been involved in a large groundwater study in the municipality of Kurikka in western Finland.

The purpose of the study is to improve understanding of the groundwater system and to assess the quality and quantity of the water resources. A three-dimensional model of the subsurface geology will be developed followed by detailed groundwater flow modelling.

The new collaborative project will bring the study to the next level of quantitative assessment of the resource and was featured recently in Kurikka's regional newspaper.
