Graduiertenkolleg "Urban Water Interfaces" (UWI)

UWI is an interdisciplinary research training group of engineers and natural scientists located at the Technische Universität Berlin and the Leibniz-Institute of Freshwater Ecology and Inland Fisheries (IGB), funded by the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (DFG). The overall aim of the UWI research training group is to educate excellent graduate students in a structured framework. We want to achieve a new quality of general process understanding in urban water systems by investigating urban water interfaces as an innovative research topic, our pioneering qualification concept and interdisciplinary and international collaboration.



N3 Greenhouse gas formation and flux across boundaries in urban water bodies

N4 Ecosystem metabolism in natural and technical aquatic systems of urban environments



Illuminating Lake Ecosystems (ILES)

The project "Illuminating lake ecosystems – ILES" studies the ecological consequences of light pollution and the underlying mechanisms. The experiments are performed in the LakeLab (Lake Stechlin, Leibniz-Institute for Freshwater Ecology and Inland Fisheries), where skyglow is simulated in 10 enclosures using a specially developed light system. 

Further information on the running experiment (Summer 2018) can be found here



Berlin-Brandenburgisches Institut für Biodiversitätsforschung (BIBB)

The overarching goal of BBIB is to bridge disciplines, scales and systems in biodiversity research. The BIBS project constitutes a core study within the BBIB framework, aiming to provide a proof-of-principle for the bridging approach.

The research team is involved in the work package "aquatic-terrestrial coupling"



Seelabor Leibniz-Institut für Gewässerökologie und Binnenfischerei

Das Seelabor ist eine große Versuchsanlage des Leibniz-Instituts für Gewässerökologie und Binnenfischerei (IGB) im brandenburgischen Stechlinsee. Die Anlage besteht aus 24 Seebecken von jeweils 9 Metern Durchmesser und ca. 20 Metern Tiefe, welche vom übrigen See abgetrennt sind. Darin werden Klimaszenarien der Zukunft simuliert und ihre Effekte auf den See erforscht.
