Effects of extreme precipitation events on biodiversity -DINAMARCA

In order to quantify the role of natural ecosystems in retaining water
and waterborne nutrients and particles in solution or suspended from
being discharged directly into the waterways after extreme
precipitation events we need to i) understand the effect of extreme
precipitation events on the biodiversity and ecosystem functioning of
natural ecosystems; and ii) to measure the capacity of different
natural ecosystems to retain and delay water flows and waterborne
matters; iii) understand the interaction between carbon built up and
water retention capacity. During the three year training period the
PhD student is expected to plan and conduct experiments in natural
ecosystems, and to work with large data sets and apply relevant
ecological models on the data.
