Webinar #1:
"Reservoir and surface water management: Water quality and sediment" (in German)


23 September 2021, 14:00 - 15:30 CEST (online)

For sustainable watershed management, a better understanding of the effects of water and sediment dynamics on regional hydrological and storage processes is essential. Some GRoW projects have developed new approaches to assessing the status of surface waters and reservoirs that allow predictions of change in both qualitative and quantitative terms. To reduce data gaps in the process, GRoW has used innovative methods to collect data through novel sensors and ground-based remote sensing. In this webinar, GRoW partners from the SaWaM, iWaGSS, and MuDak-WRM projects shared targeted knowledge about the products they have developed for dam and surface water management. 


With the following contributions:

  • Keynote: Cross-system data integration for sustainable and future-proof dam management, Christian Förster, Wupperverband 
  • Model system for water and sediment transport, Dr. Axel Bronstert, University of Potsdam (SaWaM project)
  • HIPPO - In-situ measuring system for determining the start of transport of fine sediments, Tim Kerlin, KIT (iWaGSS project)
  • Multi-parameter drone for high-precision water data collection, Ingo Nienhaus, DIE GEWÄSSER EXPERTEN! (iWaGSS project)
  • MoRE - Tool for regionalized entry modeling, Dr. Stephan Hilgert, KIT (MuDak-WRM project)
  • Automated satellite data integration, Dr. Kian Pakzad, EFTAS (MuDak-WRM project)
