"Decision Support for Integrated River Basin Management - Conflict Assessment and Solutions at the Example of the Weisse Elster"
Funded by the Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF). FKZ: 0330228
Duration: 2002-2005. Project homepage
Objectives of present studies in the Weisse Elster River Basin
- Simulation of the impact of land use changes to water quantity and quality (using different models such as SWAT and SME).
- Investigation of the development of agricultural land management in the river basin by using agricultural statistics, remote sensing and scenarios of future land use development
- Estimation of tile-drained land and simulation of the point- and non-point source input into the river.
- Setup of a databank with land management data for the Parthe subbasin (field level).
