About us


The water-monitoring team is part of the Institute of Inorganic Solid State Chemistry at Saarland University. 
For many years our team of chemists and geographers has been engaged in water research, especially in online monitoring of surface waters.
In addition to the maintenance and upgrading of the instrumentation, the conception of different measuring stations and their application is part of our vast field of activities.  Furthermore, we are in charge of the analytical quality assurance of the data. We are also responsible for the compilation of the required data transmission systems and for the management of all data collected. We hereby turn special attention to the evaluation of the data and its interpretation considering additional information like geology, land use, climate etc. We consequently publish the insights thus gained as reports, scientific papers and during conferences and symposia. Furthermore we form part of a net for the exchange of interdisciplinary information with other institutes and surveillance authorities on national and international level.
