The Collaborative Research Center (CRC) CAMPOS aims at identifying reactive landscape compartments and quantifying process dynamics with detailed field studies on biogeochemical pollutant transformations.
One important of these compartments at a catchment scale is the transition zone between groundwater and streamwater. This is where our project takes place. Our research focuses on:
- Characterization of spatial and temporal patterns of groundwater inflows into lower order streams.
- Evaluation of the potential turnover of nitrogen species (with a focus in hyporheic zone denitrification processes).
- Synthesization of obtained field data and findings in a process-based reactive transport model.
