Project: A fundamental study on exchange processes in river ecosystems
- project duration
- 01-JAN-04 – 31-DEC-09
- The goal of the research project is to investigate how the physical and biological processes and their interactions determine the exchange of water, dissolved compounds and particulate matter in borders and inundation areas of water courses. To achieve the main aim it is necessary to develop models for margin and inundation area. Multidisciplinary research and integrated modelling of hydrological transport characteristics and biological (transformation) processes is required. The coupling of different models and model descriptions forms a methodological challenge in this proposal.
