Research requires space. Especially researchers who examine natural processes from such fields as ecology, hydrology and forest science are dependent on outdoor facilities for their experiments. For this reason, examination areas were created on Freiburg airport’s campus in the spring 2013 upon which questions such as biodiversity’s role, the effects of climate change as well as sustainability of forest production systems are studied. A lot of experiments are done there. On the second day of the open house, researchers from the Faculties of Biology and Environment and Natural Resources at the University of Freiburg will provide a tour through the test facilities, introduce the measuring equipment used and will be available to answer questions about the experiments and their results. Homemade cakes and soft drinks will be offered.
