Especially in the field of research, extraordinary measurements often have to be carried out. The Vienna University of Technology established the Hydrological Open Air Laboratory (HOAL) Petzenkirchen to study the entire water flow or transport processes of a catchment. Various measurements are carried out in a 66 ha forest area.

Technical solution

Modular measuring stations based on Gealog SG. Networking of the stations through a specially developed outdoor fiber optic network. Combination measuring stations and automatic samplers. On-line access to all components via the measuring network LAN. On-line data transmission to the hydrological database.
