Groyne field of the River Elbe

ALBIS allows the sampling of water and sediment from any interesting sampling point in the river. Here, investigations of shallow water areas are of special importance.

In the main focus of recent scientific activities are investigations of the influence of groyne morphology on food web structure and the trophic base of secondary production in the River Elbe as well as investigations of transport and fate of trace metals originated from former mining areas of the River Saale.
