Haase was the first to investigate the underground drainage of the Steina, Ichte, Uffe, Wieda and Zorge rivers, including the recurrence of water in karst springs, particularly the Salzaspring near Nordhausen. After completing his studies, he worked for the Harz waterworks , where he was most recently head of the Hydrological Institute in Osterode am Harz .
