Ready-To-Go Lysimeter installation at Pianosa island

In April a new RTG lysimeter was installed by our Italian partner Ecosearch at Pianosa island.

The research project is part of a larger initiative and explores water fluxes in a mostly undisturbed environment. Pianosa was chosen because not inhabited, and for its geological peculiarities. Rainfall is measured and sampled for isotopic analysis, and the same is done for percolation water in the soil. Freshwater wells in the island are measured and sampled for isotopic and conductivity analysis.
We provided the lysimeter to investigate water movements in the soil layer and to sample percolation water; together with this, we also provided a monitoring network to record water level, temperature and conductivity in 8 wells as well as main weather parameters.
The whole system was connected to the Internet via a 4G router capable of VPN, the lysimeter was connected to this point by means of a wireless bridge.

Congratulations! Number 80 is celebrating with us at Expo 2020 Dubai!

After 46 days our lottery ended last Friday. A total of 151 people took the chance to celebrate our EcoUnit with us at Expo 2020 Dubai! 

The competition was a complete success for us! Some answers, why exactly you are the right person for Dubai have inspired us and for some efforts we thank you on this way.

But only one can win!

Today we drew the winner by lot. Each participant was randomly assigned a lot number and the colorful lucky tickets were distributed in our laboratory lysimeter. 

Managing Director Dr. Sascha Reth was the lucky messenger and drew the number 80 in the presence of Claudia Höger. Behind the lucky number 80 is a lucky winner “Thomas Z.”, whom we will contact today via email to tell him the happy news.
