At the coastline of large lakes (e.g. Lake Erie in Cleveland, USA) wind and swell cause erosion. Without structural support the shoreline will constantly change. Since these supporting constructions are very expensive and can harm nature, they will only be implemented if there is no other solution.
Important soil parameters are monitored at critical points by sensors. The SMT100 of TRUEBNER is ideally suited for the determination of soil water content and provides reliable readings.
