Researchers from the departments of Geoscience & Engineering and Geoscience & Remote Sensing are heavily involved in the DeepNL programme funded by the Dutch Research Council (NWO). This programme has been initiated as a structural and long-term research programme into the gas-extraction related problems in Groningen.The aim is to improve the fundamental understanding of the dynamics of the deep subsurface under the influence of human interventions. TU Delft is leading five DeepNL research projects including modelling the deep subsurface, better prediction of potential earthquakes and geological storage of CO2 to minimise induced seismicity.
