Deep borehole drilling campaign

This week a deep borehole drilling campaign at the HOAL started which is a part of the collaborative work with the TU Wien geophysics group. Eight significant spots spread over the catchment were determined and at each of this spots a borehole with a depth of 15 meters is drilled and a gauge installation is set up. All gauges will be equipped with different sensors to measure hydrological and geophysical parameters. The aim of this set up is to gain data from the underground happening processes and to verify models and hydrological and geophysical measurement campaigns from the surface.
