MOSES-Müglitz: Monitoring and Modelling Campaign
The hydrological study in the Müglitz catchment is part of the MOSES initiative (Modular Observation Solutions for Earth Systems, www.ufz.de/moses, coordinated by UFZ) investigating the impact extreme meteorological events on local hydrological processes. The presented visualization study is also a result of a close collaboration of the ESM and Digital Earth initiatives combining the expertise in monitoring and modelling environmental processes in a Virtual Reality framework.
Monitoring and Modelling in Large River-Lake Systems
Virtual geographic environments for catchments of rivers or lakes, combining a wide range of 2D and 3D observation data sets with simulation resultsa for holistic analysis of water and solute dynamics.

Coastal Water Management
Salt water intrusion due to overexploitation in coastal areas is deteriorating groundwater resources and heavily affects urban areas: Visualisation of subsurface flow systems helps with the design of protection measures.
Groundwater Balance in Arid Regions
Simulating the water balance for the Dead Sea, showing the decrease in the natural replenishment rate of groundwater due to water used for agriculture and lowered precipitation due to climate change.

Recharge and Discharge Controls on Groundwater Travel Times
Travel times and flow paths of groundwater from its recharge area to drinking-water production wells will govern how the quality of pumped groundwater responds to contaminations. Simulating different recharge scenarios and fitting to observed water levels allows understanding the groundwater regime in the area and to estimate water quality for production.
