‘Let’s understand aquifers to save water’

Briefly describe your research. Our research investigates how water permeates through the densest layers of rock, sediment and clay to reveal the future of freshwater resources. These layers rule the fate of 97 per cent of the Earth’s freshwater. Understanding how water penetrates the layers underground is central to how we manage it. You have mentioned the use of an environmental time machine for this study. How does it work? The environmental time machine, or Geotechnical Centrifuge, helps us emulate what happens in rocks over 20 years in a single day of testing. It tests the rate at which water penetrates dense material. We have tested about 100 samples of rock from major basins across the continent, from depths of up to a kilometre. Will your research provide answers to our growing needs?
