Nature-Oriented Hydraulic Engineering & Water Ecology
The field of water management is dominated by European directives and regulations. The European Water Framework Directive provides objectives and deadlines for its implementation in water bodies. Scientific monitoring and advice for administration and authorities in the implementation of the directive is a major focus of the research activities of the department. Aspects of water ecology are in the foreground of future management and require sound biological and water management expertise. Besides the evaluation of measures and activities, the fields of environmental education and communication are key aspects of our work.
