In February, Anne Imig will defend her work on water transport in the unsatuarated zone, followed by two more PhD students in 2023. Thereafter, a whole generation of PhD students will close their chapters here at the Chaier of Hydrogeology and will move to their next career steps.  

January 2023 was a great month for Alejandra Pena. She defended her thesis on „Investigations on methane oxidation linked with nitrogen cycling processes in the seasonally stratified lake Fohnsee“. Congratulations! We  had a great time during this interesting study. Thank you Bernhard (Prof. Dr.…
