In collaboration with universities and companies in Korea, KIST started a unique project with focuses on water quality issues related to geochemical reactions and the high resolution density-driven flow model coupled with reactive transport.
Geophysical measurements were executed at the field sites in Dinteloord, Westland, Nootdorp, and Ovezande in order to record the realized freshwater build-up.
After around 3 months of construction, the ASR-coastal system at Dinteloord (WP2.3) was ready for a first test cycle. With this, the first SUBSOL replication site comes within operation around six months after the start of the project.
The first field campaign, visiting the ASR-coastal sites and the Freshmaker was held from November 10 till November 13.
On 24 February a delegation of NAWAPI visited KWR. On the agenda was the opportunities for European-Vietnamese colloboration and knowledge exchange.
8 and 9 October 2015 was the official start of the European project SubSol at KWR in Nieuwegein.
