Export and Import of the Mobile Wind Tunnel
After a lot of difficulties, the Mobile Wind Tunnel which was developed by the Umwelt-Geräte-Technik and the Research Unit Geoecology of the Martin-Luther-University, it finally reached its destination Kazhakstan. With the help of our local partners "Amazone Kazhakstan" and the "Baraev Institut", it was possible to have our first field experiment on the Baraev test sites.
With its first run, we started to improve and adapt the mobile wind tunnel to the challenges we are going to meet in the field next year. There is still a lot to be done but we are excited to face those challenges. With this in-situ measurement, we hope to quantify the effects of land use and different agricultural practices on wind erosion.
