Partners

The project brings together a consortium of Danish and Chinese research institutions, regional agencies and enterprises, all of which will benefit from the collaboration.

The Geological Survey of Denmark and Greenland (GEUS) and Southern University of Science and Technology (SUSTECH), Shenzhen represent the core of the research partners.

University of Jinan and Beijing Water Science and Technology Institute (BWSTI) are also partners being responsible for the Yufuhe River and the Beiyun River sites.

In addition, the Danish environmental consultancy Archiland A/S will represent Danish enterprises and will take lead on the economic evaluation of MAR implementation in NCP through their vast experience and network in China.

Advisory board

An advisory board will be organized, consisting of MAR expert Peter Dillon from CSIRO, Australia and Danish Green Growth Counsellor Mads Terkelsen.

They will participate in project meetings and stakeholder workshops. Peter Dillon is the founding chairman of the International Association of Hydrogeologists (IAH) Commission on MAR.

Mads Terkelsen will represent the Danish SSC initiative and Dr. Guoliang Cao from the China Institute of Water Resources and Hydropower Research (IWHR), who is also involved in the SSC has agreed to be involved in stakeholder workshops.

Topic: Large scale hydrology

The aim is to derive monthly irrigation estimates over NCP. This analysis is based on large scale hydrological modelling and a remote sensing evapotranspiratoin model. Results will be utilized to define boundary conditions for a regional groundwater model.

Topic: Numerical simulations

A semi-coupled mondeling with HEC-RAS and HUDRUS-3D was established to compute the effective recharge rate and put forward the scientific water release scheme. The simulation results show that the effective recharge rates are 64.9%, 65.2% and 68.1%, and the water release time are 26, 20, and 14 days when the buried depths of water table are 40, 30 and 25 m, respectively.

Topic: Sand tank experiment

The purpose of our experiment is to analyze the water distribution and sediment transport in recharge. Our experiment use sand tank to simulate the leakage of Quaternary system. This sand tank is designed with thee outlets to measure surface runoff, lateral runoff and effective infiltration. The control factors for the experiment are water quantity, turbidity and particle size of the recharge water.

Topic: Water quantity

Based on the existing hydrogeological data, reservoir design and operation data and groundwater monitoring data, we applied the analytical method and Visual MODFLOW to simulate the leakage process of the reservoir. And the results of numerical simulation are good. At present, it is found that the reservoir leakage mainly occurs in the confined aquifer, and the leakage is about 80,000 cubic meters per day. The leakage location is mainly on the northwest, west and south sides of the reservoir. The location of the production well that ensures the safety of the dam is at least 40 meters from the dam toe. Sampling and analysis of the reservoir water and surrounding groundwater revealed that the organic matter content in the groundwater was reduced.

Topic: Sand column experiment

The colloid-associated atrazine transport was undertaken with sand column experiment under the condition of sand washing, the result show that the clay mineral colloid in the Yellow River facilitates the migration of atrazine in the gravel layer to some extent. Therefore, preventive measures must be taken to reduce the intrusion of exogenous clay mineral colloid that carries organic contaminants, it is essential to protect water quality in the Jinan area. And the paper titled “Modelling of colloid-associated atrazine transport in sand column based on Managed aquifer recharge” has been published in Environmental earth science.

Topic: Transportation and transformation of Sulfate

The laboratory experiment is divided into three parts, and currently we are working on the first part. The water of South-to-North Water Transfer and Calcium Carbonate Powder were mixed at a ratio of 3 to 1 by volume, then shake and centrifuge to get supernatant for use. And distilled water groups were additionally set for comparison. Then detect the ion concentrations of them in addition to the water of the South-to-North Water Transfer using different detection methods. And the oscillation time varies from 0 to 72h to observe the effect of different mixing times on concentrations.
