Chair of Physical Geography and Quantitative Methods

All disciplines of physical geography, especially hydro-geography and applied physical geography.


Scientific focus: Analysis of the complex interactions of water and climate. The chair is operated jointly with the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology and the Institute of Meteorology and Climate Research (KIT/IMK-IFU) in Garmisch-Partenkirchen. (KIT/IMK-IFU) in Garmisch-Partenkirchen.


Working Group Water and Soil Resources Research (Prof. Fiener)

The working group adopts a holistic approach to the interactions between land use, land management as well as water and soil resources. The following topics are of special hydrological interest:

  • surface runoff and soil redistribution processes in the context of hydrological connectivity,
  • lateral redistribution of soil carbon and its impact on the terrestrial and aquatic carbon balance,
  • sustainable management of water and soil resources in agricultural landscapes.
