Focus Scale



At the focus scale 5 sub-basins are studied in greater detail. All of them are typical representatives of the total Havel basin, but they differ considerably in their natural characteristics and the possible management options:


The river basins of the Döllnitz (26 km²) and the Small Rhin (38 km²) in the upper Rhin, which in the past was used as a water provide for the Rhinluch. It’s future management is still uncertain.


The sub-basins Upper Nuthe (676 km²) and Hammerfliess (208 km²), which are dominated by intensive agricultural use. Here, groundwater plays an important role for nutrient input.

bulletThe Gülper Havel (70 km²) in the lower Havel, characterized by a large fractional area of meadows and natural resoures.
