Research | Core of our activities is research with the aim of reducing contamination of ground and surface waters by pollutants and erosion. Within numerous projects our experts are challenged in the research fields of erosion, matter transport and soil water balance.
Laboratory devices | Main emphasis of our laboratory methods concentrates on measurement of soil physical parameters like texture, density, determination of hydraulic conductivities, soil water retention curves or aggregate stabilities.
Our chemical determinations focus on those methods which are of basic interest for soil/water management or which are needed for soil physical analisís (such as organic carbon content to determine soil texture).
Beside the standard procedures, we test and develop new methods to describe soil physical properties.
Consultancy | The results from research and project-related studies are basis of our advising us activity. These we offer to the federal administration, the administrative units on land, district and district level, interest agencies, private organizations and individuals. Our consultation can be taken up in the form of lectures and presentations, conferences, meetings and excursion ions or in the form of discussions or single discussions.
Expertise | We offer case oriented solutions in form of expertises, frequently coupled with numerous investigations. here our strength is to deliver solutions which are close to the needs of administrations and policy.
