  • Special features regarding the equipment
    Since 2008, and since the reorganisation of the Institute, three key areas may be noted: the expansion into modern physical/geographical field equipment (soil/sediments/water/air), the establishment of a geo-ecological lab setup (soil/water analytics), and the establishment of GIS workstations. Lab equipment and usage is shared in a cost-efficient manner with Chemistry and Biology. Good central infrastructure; teaching-related IT offers (LearnWeb, forums); 181 computer workstations are available for students, 24 hours a day; multimedia rooms, video conference rooms.
  • Special features regarding research activities
    Human influenced landscape research forms the focal point. Taking a holistic view, the focus is on landscape factors with a pronounced anthropogenic character and the interaction complex of causes, dimension and consequences of such landscape development. The methodical area of focus is the application of GIS to supplement accurate qualitative geostatistical statements with quantitative areal statements.
  • Support for founders
