A coupled model system, consisting of a distributed hydrological model and an economic optimization model, is applied 1) to investigate regional interdependencies between irrigated agriculture and regional water balance and 2) to identify optimized cultivation strategies. The coupled model system is applied to a case study for the semi-arid Atankwidi(More)
A technology center for the production of high-precision reflection gratings has been established. Within this project a new optics beamline and a versatile reflectometer for at-wavelength characterization of UV- and XUV-reflection gratings and other (nano-) optical elements has been set up at BESSY-II. The Plane Grating Monochromator beamline operated in(More)
We present the design, construction and operation of a novel building systems laboratory, the BubbleZERO—Zero Emission Research Operation. Our objective was to design a space to evaluate the performance of Swiss-developed low exergy building systems in the tropical climate of Singapore using an integrated design approach. The method we employed for(More)
