  • Case study - Buoy-based temperature profiling in the Bavarian Lakes

    In summertime a temperature stratification occurs in deep lakes – the surface water is warm, but deep down the water is cold.  This has considerable influence on the nutrient balance and the biological habitat in these lakes. Due to generally higher air temperatures induced by the climate change, both change and have effects on the life conditions of the ecosystems in the lakes. ...
