Measurement campaigns in Halle and Dessau

June 2-15, 2020. Field campaigns reveal subsurface urban heat islands in Halle and Dessau.

Two city-wide field campaigns are carried out with temperature-depth profiles beeing logged at more than 60 wells in each city. These measurements are associated with two master theses and will provide valuable insights into the thermal field in the underground of the respective cities.

We study groundwater flow and transport mechanisms on multiple scales, especially heat transport, coupled mechanical deformation and environmental impacts. This is motivated by the thrill of exploring the enormous diversity of the geo-environment hidden beneath our feet from the depth of a few centimeters to kilometers.
