    Blog "A Bridge to Africa"

    For one week in autumn 2018 young scientists from Ghana and other African regions will meet geoscientists from Geoverbund ABC/J in Accra, to get in contact with the latest methods of modern geoscientific research – modeling and simulation with supercomputers. The vision: Soil Research can support a secure and sustainable food production for Africa – and a week together could be the first step for future cooperation of geoscientists from both sides of the bridge. This project diary will report regularly how the bridge building advances. More: Blog "A Bridge to Africa" …

    Experienced Postdoc for the Coordination of the Simulation Laboratory Terrestrial Systems

    01.02.2018 - Centre of Excellence for High-Performance Scientific Computing in Terrestrial Systems (HPSC TerrSys), Forschungszentrum Jülich

    Simulation Laboratories (SimLabs) act as interfaces between the computational science communities and the HPSC resources at the Jülich Supercomputing Centre (JSC), operating one of the most powerful HPSC infrastructures in Europe. The SimLab Terrestrial Systems (SimLab TerrSys) is part of the JSC and the centre of excellence for High-Performance Scientific Computing in Terrestrial Systems (HPSC TerrSys), which was founded as an initiative of Geoverbund ABC/J in 2011. SimLab TerrSys conducts HPSC in geosciences and contributes to an improved understanding and prediction of geophysical, hydrological, meteorological and bio-geochemical processes in terrestrial systems.

    How to Write and Publish a Scientific Paper and Scientific Ethics

    To publish a scientic paper, one needs both good science and good writing. This course will introduce the concepts of scientific writing and the procedures to publish a scientific paper. Participants can also bring their own writing, and good and bad writing will be discussed. The course does not focus on English per se, but rather emphasizes the scientific writing aspect. The course will also discuss authorship and ethical issues involved in the publication process. More: How to Write and Publish a Scientific Paper and Scientific Ethics …

    Nitrate and (Ground-) Water – One Problem, Many Strategies

    Roughly one year ago, the European Commission referred Germany to the European Court of Justice for allegedly neglecting to take stronger groundwater protection measures. To this day, the limit value of 50 mg/l nitrate is exceeded at about 18 % of Germany’s measuring points. The agricultural sector is viewed as the main culprit. In particular, the spreading of animal and mineral fertilizers but increasingly also the digestates of energetically exploited biomass lead to widespread overfertilization of agricultural areas and therefore excessive nitrate contents in the groundwater.
