In November 2021 we continue digitally with fresh coffee and very exciting research! The Museum für Naturkunde Berlin once again invites you to the Digital Science Communication Cafe. This month in German. Get ready to get exciting insights from scientists into their work while drinking coffee in front of the screens in a relaxed atmosphere. Everyone is invited to ask questions and contribute to the conversation.
This time we invited Franziska Ellen Walther, a master's student at Humboldt University in Berlin. The geographer uses very special methods to research the interactions between water and land. Working at the Leibniz Institute of Freshwater Ecology and Inland Fisheries (IGB), she has analyzed rivers and their surroundings to understand complex relationships between water chemistry, land use and geology. Her research focuses primarily on the river network of the Greek-Albanian Vjosa River, which is considered one of the last wild rivers in Europe. Her work consists of water sampling, its analysis in the laboratory and statistical analysis using modern technology.
In November, we will learn from Franziska how exciting life as a geographer can be, what makes wild rivers tick, and why the Vjosa is unique compared to other European rivers. So there is a lot to learn - bring a big cup of coffee!
