Hydrogeology - Water Management - Geoinformation     Project Summaries







This site lists some selected  projects, that have been carried out by myself as a freelance geologist or in interdisciplinary teamwork with engineers, geologists, chemists and ecologists of Dr. Blasy - Dr. Øverland Consulting Engineers, Eching, or Erdwerk GmbH, Munich. Also some projects carried out during my employment time (before 1997) at Dr. Blasy + Mader Consulting Engineers are listed.

Actual projects refer mainly to water resources studies carried out by giz international services/Dornier Consulting in Saudi Arabia.

The projects are briefly described by objectives of the project and, in some cases, methods applied. Have a look on the project data sheets on my German sites to get an idea about some interesting projects. The English versions are available on request. Also a complete project and reports list since 1992 is available on request.

More projects can be found on the German pages.

Almost all of the projects are documented in internal expert's reports. Therefore, it is, with respect to the clients, not possible to offer material for download.
