OLGA project in mdr feature on agroforestry

Effects of agricultural wood structures on biodiversity in flowing waters


The OLGA test area at farmer Thomas Domin's in Peickwitz in southern Brandenburg became the setting for a mdr feature on agroforestry this summer. Manuel Wewer from the Institute of Hydraulic Engineering and Thermal Hydromechanics at the TU Dresden explains from minute 6:20 the technology installed in and around the Peickwitz millrace to measure water temperature, water level, air temperature, humidity and pressure as well as wind speed and solar radiation. The measurement results provide information about the shading effect of the adjacent agricultural wood structure on the watercourse.
