We are using the latest technologies to investigate surface and subsurface changes - not only in research but also for knowledge transfer.
Unmanned Aerial Systems (UAS)
We are operating versatile UAS (unmanned aircraft systems) suitbable - even on short notice - for inspections and photogrammetric recordings with centimeter accuracy.
For the acquisition and analysis of hydrological insitu-parameters we use pressure probes, loggers, pumping equipment, and instruments for the recording of hydrochemical properties.
For the acquisition of terrain surface data and the detection of surface changes we use high-precision shortrange-, midrange- and longrange-laserscanners.
Depending on study site and research need, spatial data is required on different scale levels. We use the entire remote sensing spectrum, from terrestrial recordings to satellite data.
We use electrical resistivity tomography, georadar in different frequency ranges, as well as active and passive seismic techniques to conduct non-destructive 2D investigations of the subsurface.
Using Differential GPS we conduct high-precision point and profile measurements corrected in real-time.
Borehole Temperature Measurements
To assess stability-relevant ground thermal conditions we develop and use new temperature measurment methods for deep and shallow boreholes.
We use augmented reality methods to playfully impart information on complex issues. Landscapes molded by hand can be augmented with elevation information, topographic contour lines and simulated water.
