TONIA: nutrition management in precision agriculture

The aim of the joint project is to optimise nutrient management on arable soils. Since the soil is very specific, the areas are measured geoelectrically. The LIAG is responsible for the evaluation of the geoelectrical data. The conductivity maps are converted into 3-D soil texture maps with the help of reference measurements.

Optimised groundwater exploration

LIAG is coordinating the OGER project, which has been approved by the German Federal Foundation for the Environment. The development of an economically feasible workflow for hydrogeological exploration using geophysical methods should enable a reduction in cost-intensive drilling while at the same time gaining more information. A special focus is on northern Germany.

Study identifies deficits for the accelerated expansion of deep geothermal energy

Where and under what aspects can there be bottlenecks that could hinder the rapid expansion of geothermal energy? In order to answer this scientific question, the LIAG, on the initiative and under the direction of Prof. Dr. Inga Moeck, has launched an institute-funded cross-impact study and carried it out together with the University of Göttingen.
