Magdeburger Boje reist nach China

The Magdeburg newspaper "Volksstimme" reported on 14.02.17 about the transport of a research buoy from the UFZ Magdeburg to the Chao Lake, China. The buoy allows the researchers to better observe the algae concentration in the Chao lake and thus contributes to the aim of improving water quality in the Lake. This was explained by the UFZ project manager Dr. Karsten Rinke, who is from the Department of Sea Research of the Urban Catchments project, in an interview with the newspaper.
