Two data grants approved for Z2

Two grants were approved for the Z2 project, which is very much appreciated. The first grant is the TanDEM-X Global DEM for the whole study area by the TanDEM-X Science Team. This very accurate digital elevation model will give us the opportunity to derive geomorphometric data for many applications within the CRC, such as catchment analysis, landform classifications and drainage system analysis.

Fieldwork 2017 CRC 1211 – The workshop aftermath

Mostly all groups within the CRC 1211 used their stay after the kick-off workshop for their field work. More than 12 groups with in total more than 60 scientists sampled, measured and discussed in the field their research, met other groups in the field for in-situ discussion and sampling for cluster comprehensive collaboration and interactions within the CRC and with local scientist and experts.

CRC 1211 Kick-off Workshop, Hornitos (Chile) 13-14.03.2017

In March 2017, the first kick-off workshop of the CRC1211 “Earth Evolution at the Dry Limit” took place at Hornitos, Chile. Short talks given by researchers from Germany of each cluster and especially from our Chilean colleagues about famous research in our focus areas provided insights into recent research, ongoing/starting projects and activities achieved since the start of the CRC1211.

Introduction Field Campaign – 05.03-12.03.2017

In March 2017, a mixed group of 36 researchers from all CRC1211 projects (Biology, Geophysics, Meteorology, Geography, Geology) participate an 8-day introduction field campaign guided by Prof. Tibor Dunai, Benedikt Ritter and Dr. Damian Lopez. The group, with many young researchers (PhD students, PostDocs) visited on their trip all three focus areas of the CRC1211 to gain the big picture of our new Collaborative Research Centre.
