The EGU General Assembly 2016 took place in Vienna from the 17th to the 22nd of April. This event was a forum for geoscientists from all over the world. EGU is an outstanding congress as it brings together in one place the different disciplines of sciences – which refers to the Earth, planetary and space sciences.
The EGU is on the one hand a forum where scientists have the opportunity to present their work and give contributions – which can be in the sesscions or in the poster shows. So there is a wide range of discussion and presentation of ideas among and with experts in all fields of geoscience.
In 2016 UGT presented its work at booth 53 in the congress center and also used the outside area for exhibition. The big lysimeter station which normally is only 1.5 m underground – was a highlight for visitors. Very often scientists came for consultance to our booth 53 to learn more about highly advanced lysimeter technology and get to know all options from:
– laboratory lysimeters
– ready to go – RTG lysimetres
– double and fourfold lysimeterstations
After the visit in the UGT double lysimeter station in Vienna – in brainstorming with our exhibition team Dr. Sascha Reth, Dr. Christian Heerdt and Kerstin Thomsen – the scientist from all over the world defined their research project and informed about interesting new targets for the use of lysimeters.
Vienna – Berlin – Mumbai – London – Sydney – Chicago – Buenos Aires – Zurich – Munich – these are just a few places where our scientific colleagues came from to visit our booth 53– and EGU is more than a customer – client relation – here the scientific exchange of information and discussion goes hand in hand with the demand for new products. – And UGT is prepared – “ We do development for new monitoring instruments on demand” – we are proud when we hear from the scientists that they could get new information based on UGT-measuring instruments. At the EGU there participated scientists and visitors from more than 100 countries – colleagues from about 50 countries passed by and informed themselves about UGT product range.
Another highlight of our programme was our new portable automatic chamber system. There we offered an ideal combination between lysimeter, gas analyser- UGT is the agent of Picarro – the leading producer of equipment to measure GHGs, trace gases and stable isotopes found in the air , water and land. The automatic chamber system from UGT provides a very good measuring tool for greenhouse gasses during the day with the transparent chamber and with the dark chamber to imitate night without photosynthesis.
We thank our visitors and colleagues coming from scientific Institutes and universities from Germany, Europe and all over the world for the interest in our products.
We look forward to the emerging products and will contact you to answer all inquiries,
We look forward to the next EGU – we thank the organizers in Vienna – we thank for the cordial welcome in the wonderful city Vienna
The EGU is looking forward to cordially welcoming you in Vienna.
