for which the project has a relevance.

Research Areas:


Objectives (1) Mapping flow and sediment dynamics in the Spöl river using high resolution geomorphological techniques (e.g. UAVs with digital image acquisition and thermal imaging, laser scanning, structure from motion); (2) Experimentation with e-flows in BACI designs to observe impacts on multiple ecosystem properties; (3) Link geomorphological dynamics with functional properties (sediment metabolism)
Expected results (1) New understanding of geomorphic and sediment response to flood flows in hydropower regulated rivers; (2) Driving role of abiotic habitat in ecosystem functional dynamics (e.g. sediment metabolism via dissolved oxygen sensors); (3) Knowledge of links between flow, habitat and invertebrate production
