Wolfram Kloppmann holds a PhD in isotope hydrogeochemistry from Paris XI University and a Habilitation à diriger des Recherches (accreditation to steer research) from Orléans University. He joined the French geological survey BRGM in 1996. He was head of BGRM’s Isotope Unit and laboratory from 2011 to 2017. His specialties include chemistry and isotope characteristics of deep natural groundwaters and gases, water-rock interactions in aquifers, isotope fingerprinting of water contaminants, paleohydrology, traceability of geomaterials in particular in the field of cultural heritage, and degradation of building stones. Most of his research work has involved the use of environmental isotopes. He participated in numerous EU projects under Horizon 2020’s Framework Programmes 5 to 8 as project coordinator or work package leader. Wolfram is also coordinator of the ANR-NSERC Franco-Canadian G-Baseline project on baseline determination for impact assessment in the field of unconventional hydrocarbons. He is author and co-author of over 200 publications, including 70 peer-reviewed papers (h-index 21).
In the SECURE project, Wolfram leads WP3 on Environmental baseline and monitoring strategies.
