  • Terrestrisches 3D-Laserscanning (Projektsammlung) Dipl.-Geogr. Robert Wexler ()
    Terrestrisches 3D-Laserscanning ermöglicht eine hochgenaue, dreidimensionale Vermessung von Bauwerken, Landschaftsformen und anderen Objekten. Die gewonnen Daten können wertvolle Erkenntnisse über die vermessenen Objekte liefern und für die Erstellung von Plänen, digitalen 3D-Modellen und Animationen verwendet werden.
    Der Leica C10 Laserscanner des Instituts für Geographie kann die Umgebung bis zu einer Entfernung von 300 m mit einem Laserstrahl abtasten und erzeugt dabei über ein Impulsmessverfahren bis zu 50.000 Messpunkte pro Sekunde. Der Scanner kommt in unterschiedlichen Anwendungsszenarien in verschiedenen Projekten des Instituts zum Einsatz.


  • Warm water events in the South-East Atlantic: Benguela-Niños Dr. Karin Romberg Prof. Dr. Jucundus Jacobeit Dr. Irena Kaspar-Ott ()

    In contrast to the Pacific El Niño phenomenon which has been intensively studied for a long time, only few studies have focused on warm water events in the southeast Atlantic and their impact on regional and global scales. Although it has already been shown that such events influence the local ecosystem and regional rainfall, comprehensive studies considering the impact on African precipitation based on a long-term record period are lacking. Considering teleconnections and future projections, only few studies exist. Therefore, this project was dedicated to a comprehensive analysis of warm and cold water events in the tropical southeast Atlantic including their regional impact and global interactions in present times and future projections.

  • Longterm Phosphorus Translocation by Deer Antlers Dr. M. Fesq-Martin ()
    Cervids like red deer, wapiti, caribou and ren show seasonal migrations between summer- and winter grazing grounds. These deer species produce new antlers annually, which contain a high amount of phosphorus. The decay of the antlers brings phosphorus back to remineralisation. To evaluate the potential for longterm effects on vegetation, we examine the way and amount of antlers decay under natural conditions. If antlers play a functional role in phosphorus fertilisation of vegetation, this could be an explanation for the evolution of female antlers in caribou and ren.
