Central Library of Hydrology

The BfG's library has a stock of more than 85,000 publications, including approx. 1,000 current scientific and technical journals.

Here you can find a wealth of information – especially on topics such as quantitative and qualitative hydrology, aquatic ecology, conservation of waters, water-resources management, hydrography, hydrogeology, hydrobiology including fishing biology, radioactivity in waters, geodesy - and, of course, on other topics.

These publications can be lent or consulted at the library. Only users from the Koblenz region can borrow media directly. However, you can borrow media by ordering through the inter-library lending system at your nearest public library.
