Aim and focus

This project aims to understand how aquatic and wetland ecological processes will feedback and interact with the consolidation and soil forming processes. The challenge in this project is to understand the interplay and feedbacks between biogeochemistry, hydrology, sedimentology, geomechanics and aquatic and terrestrial ecology. This interdisciplinary project requires to approach the research from multiple angles. In various experiments, the scale of the experiments gradually builds up as more knowledge about the system becomes available.
