Our first international Em3 ships.

Yesterday we shipped our first Em3 outside the United States, to the Leibniz Institute of Freshwater Ecology and Inland Fisheries in Berlin.  This model is a single axis tilt version; with adjustable tilt along the long or downstream axis.

Current research projects there include the analyses of recreational fisheries management,  development of reliable ecological assessment tools,  rehabilitation of sturgeon as charismatic umbrella species, and understanding biotic responses to hydromorphological changes

The model’s use there will include teaching and research on hydrodynamic transport and biogeochemical turnover processes in floodplain aquifers and hyporheic zones.
