Equipment pool

The equipment pool offers a wide range of field and measuring equipment for geographical work. Besides equipment for climatology, hydrology, vegetation geography, geomorphology and soil science, this also includes devices for human geography work such as dictaphones. The inventory (only in german)2 provides an overview of all the available equipment.

Students and staff at the Department of Geography can borrow equipment for field practicals, tutorials, theses (bachelor’s, master’s, doctoral) and research work. Please also observe our user regulations (340 KB; only in german)3.
