In the Fuhrberger Field there is a problem of high nitrate concentration in ground water, probably due to peat. In cooperation with iSOIL partner ConsulAqua GeoInfometric (GI) geophysical techniques (GPR and EMI ) were applied to study the stakeholder problem of the source detection for nitrate accumulations in the ground water. Together with the municipal authority of water supply, Stadtwerke Hannover AG, we selected two sites inside the water protection area of Fuhrberger Feld, north of Hanover. The results of these measurements were presented at a Workshop: Geophysical investigations in the water protection area Fuhrberger Feld with 10 participants (iSOIL partners UFZ, ConsulAqua/GI, CAU, water supply company, Stadtwerke Hannover AG and Engineering-Office Sprinob).
