- Marine and terrestrial influence on submarine groundwater discharge in coastal waters connected to a peatland - Miriam Ibenthal
- HEM-based mapping of the salt-/fresh water interface (SFI) using Direct-Push groundwater sampling - Nico Deus (TOPSOIL partnership)
On the 7th of March the topics beneath were on the agenda:
- Analysis of salinity distribution in the coastal aquifers of northern Germany using geophysical and geochemical information – Mohammad Azizur Rahman (TOPSOIL Partnership)
- Groundwater gravimetry with innovative quantum gravimeter in the Elbe Weser coastal region - Ludger Timmen
The workshop concluded with a discussion on possible methods and experiences of measures to prevent saltwater intrusion.
