Groundwater Research Center (GRC)

Groundwater Research Center is established by the Department of Geology at the Ferdowsi University of Mashhad. Some of the most important aims of the Groundwater Research Center are:

  • Exploration of aquifers
  • Quantitative and qualitative evaluation of groundwater reservoirs
  • Identification of natural factors and pollutants influencing the quality of groundwater
Identification of threats and irreparable damages resulting from excessive harvesting of such national resources. These damages include decrease in permanent reservation of aquifers, change in the pattern of groundwater currents, decrease in the wells and qanat’s flow, increase in the expenses of water harvesting, and decrease in the quality of groundwater through application of new scientific and technological methods.
