It is evident from the current flood catastrophe: Water is powerful and inconsistent. Scientists of the “Earth and Environment” Competence Area of Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) study these and other properties of water for a better understanding and use. On Wednesday, June 19, 2013, 18.30 hrs, they will present their work at the Karlsruhe city hall under the heading of “Wasserkreisläufe – Vielfalt im Wandel” (Water Cycles – Diversity Subject to Change).”

Being “The Research University in the Helmholtz Association”, KIT creates and imparts knowledge for the society and the environment. It is the objective to make significant contributions to the global challenges in the fields of energy, mobility, and information. For this, about 10,000 employees cooperate in a broad range of disciplines in natural sciences, engineering sciences, economics, and the humanities and social sciences. KIT prepares its 22,800 students for responsible tasks in society, industry, and science by offering research-based study programs. Innovation efforts at KIT build a bridge between important scientific findings and their application for the benefit of society, economic prosperity, and the preservation of our natural basis of life. KIT is one of the German universities of excellence.
