Student field trip

Yesterday, the TU Dresden hydrology bachelor course was on a field trip to Golzern river gauge (Vereinigte Mulde, Saxony), Brandis lysimeter station (near Leipzig) and the Zwenkauer See, which is a closed coal surface mine, undergoing land restoration.

The field trip was kindly backed up by the Saxon Environmental Monitoring Agency.

Here are some pictures:

During the last days, extensive rainfall over central Europe caused river stages to rise. Right now, the runoff has propagated to the larger rivers and streams.
On Sunday, foremost the headwaters were affected, e.g., Western-Saxonian Rödelbach near the town Kirchberg (mind the debris line, indicating the highest water level):

Yesterday evening, I took some pictures at the Elbe in Dresden (WL below 7 m):

Right now, I am traveling to Koblenz (ICWRER 2013) with some worries that gauge Dresden/Elbe could rise above 9 m. I just passed the Rivers Saale and Unstrut near Naumburg and that is what I saw:
