Adrian Metzgen is a PhD student, supervised by Dr. habil. Markus Ebert at Prof. Andreas Dahmke`s chair for Applied Geology, Aquatic Geochemistry and Hydrogeology in the Institute of Geosiences at Kiel University, Germany. He is generally working in the field of geo energy storages, and his contribution to the EGU general assembly 2017 was based on his Bachelor thesis, focusing on the impact of the pH on hydrogen oxidizing redox processes in aquifers due to gas intrusions and examining potential consequences in case of a gas leakage accidently caused by an underground hydrogen gas storage. He has recently started a PhD program in the field of geothermal heat storages. There, the focus is on urban heat storages in contaminated aquifers with questions relating to the remediation and to phase fractionation processes of organic pollutants due to heat application within these systems.
