Research topics

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.
