Field and laboratory experiments

For research into the effect of water quality, we can set up enclosures (cylinders) in the field within which water quality can be manipulated. In terrestrial systems, we have extensive experience with the design and sampling of field experiments to determine the effects of restoration measures such as the application of stone meal, ploughing or reintroduction of plant species. To conduct laboratory experiments under controlled conditions, we have several climate-controlled chambers at our disposal. We use these climate chambers for experiments, for example to determine phosphate mobilization from the sediment, the application of iron sludge or the effects of desiccation on the (water) soil.
