We explore the behavior of water at and beneath the Earth’s surface. Many projects at the institute are aimed at securing the quality and quantity of water resources in Israel and elsewhere around the world. Major research themes include tracing the movement of pollutants in water supplies, developing techniques to remediate contaminated water, and predicting the effects of climate change on water supplies.
