Terrestrial landscape provides the storage of water, carbon and nutrients, controlling biogeochemical and hydrological cycles in various different compartments in the Critical Zone (CZ). That is known as the heterogeneous environment where complex interactions between rock, soil, water, air, and living organism make our life possible.
Although these different compartments are connected by fluid flow and matter transport, they are studied separately. In our research, we aim to establish a model system to analyze the dynamic fluxes of carbon and nitrogen in groundwater and explore how they are affected by climate variability and the change of the associated variations of surface condition. My research is as part of integrated projects of the Collaborative Research Centre 1076 AquaDiva and to address the core questions: How deep do surface signals extend in the Critical Zone and how are they transformed as they are transported from the surface to subsurface?
