Professor Jared West

Dr Jared West’s┬áresearch addresses physical and geophysical approaches to the characterization of fluid flow (groundwater, hydrocarbons) and contaminant movement in the subsurface, utilising hydraulic (pumping) and tracer tests, ground penetrating radar and geoelectrical techniques. Laboratory studies are conducted to characterise fundamental physico-chemical mechanisms underlying field-scale hydrogeological, geotechnical and geophysical responses, and relate geophysical properties with hydrological, petrophysical, geotechnical or geochemical variables.

Research funding: NERC, European Commission and private sector.
