URBWATER Vienna´s Urban Waterscape 1683-1918. An Environmental History

Danube 1726, 1825 and 2010

While the Danube and the adjacent riparian area have been reconstructed back to 1529 in the precursor project ENVIEDAN, the environmental history of its tributary system remains largely unknown. The interdisciplinary project URBWATER investigates fundamental changes of Vienna´s waterscape from 1683-1918 and analyzes the influence of the dynamic aquatic environment for Vienna´s urban development.

URBWATER is funded by the Austrian Science Fund FWF
