A lysimeter is a device for measuring the water balance variables evaporation, precipitation and is normally combined with a quantification of the amount of leachate.
The focus is to create the necessary basis for the use and protection of groundwater and to make results available to interested parties, authorities and citizens in a suitable form.
The aim of the subject area of applied hydrogeology is the exploration of water resources, their dynamics and composition in alpine and extra-alpine areas.
The main focus in this business area is the combination of hydrological modeling with a wide variety of methods and data from hydrogeology and geology, such as surveys, mapping, hydrogeological and geological expertises, isotope hydrology, etc.
Hydrochemistry is an interdisciplinary field that deals with the chemical composition of water. An essential aspect of hydrogeochemistry is the identification of processes that influence water composition.
