The management of natural and man-made resources is a central request of the D-BAUG. Primarily it contains the management of the resources water, soil and building materials as well as the management of the cultural landscape. The guidance principle for teaching and research is sustainability. Their implementation presupposes system knowledge and their prognostic describability.
Research within the D-BAUG deals with modern methods of data acquisition (e.g. remote sensing), data analysis and interpretation of data by simulation models. Innovative basic approachs are necessary to handle aspects of the Multiscaling of the systems, the uncertainty and incompleteness of the data and the consequences for the reliability of the prognoses. The simulation models cover physically based models of water circulation, material transfer and material streams (inclusive recycling) as well as the coupling to economic and agent-based models.
The social relevance of the areas water and soil are obvious. Both are terse resources and the nutrition of mankind and thus global stability depend on how effective we can manage these resources. Structural resources represent enormous economical and cultural values and their use and development of the demand for sustainability have to be as well sufficient as the natural resources.That leads to the fact that we are in need of concepts with a holistic view of the anthropogenen systems, which are to be developed in regard to their functions, structures, processes and organisation.
