Thesis on biotope type mapping and ecosystem services in the city

As part of the namares 2.0 project, biotope types and ecosystem services in the towns of Bretten and Bruchsal are to be mapped on site and using remote sensing (contact: S. Norra).

Thesis: Soil moisture dynamics in soils of water protection areas in the commune of Bühl

Prolonged periods of drought affect groundwater recharge due to dried-out soils. In the project BioWaWi, the soil moisture dynamic is to be determined (contact: S. Norra).

Algae and material flow dynamics in reservoirs (Wahnbachtalsperre, Siegburg)

Climate change influences the algae dynamics in bodies of water. This can affect the water quality in drinking water reservoirs. The DIWA project is dedicated to this topic (contact: S. Norra).

Master's thesis on the characterization of the pollution situation and humic substances in Potsdam's
