Greifensee as a house laboratory for Eawag water research

January 4, 2022 | Andri Bryner

The honourable Natural Research Society of Zurich has just published its 224th New Year's Bulletin. It is devoted entirely to the eight square kilometre Greifensee, which Eawag is also researching intensively.

Eawag has long used Lake Greifen as its in-house laboratory and lecture room  on its doorstep. It is therefore clear that Eawag research should not be absent from the New Year's Bulletin of the Natural Research Society of Zurich on Lake Greifen.

After the Forch, which is now a play ship at the Eawag-Empa crèche, the Otto Jaag was christened and put into operation in 2013.
