HypoTrain Logo

HypoTRAIN is a collaborative research project utilising state of the art technologies, from multiple disciplines, to generate new mechanistic insights into the functioning of hyporheic zones.  A group of PhD students will be educated using the multi-faceted nature of hyporheic zones as the central theme of the training programme.  The expertise created will produce scientists that will set the ground for a more holistic design of river management and restoration measures.  You can find more information on the project at the following website.

Interfaces Logo

INTERFACES project is a supra-disciplinary training and research network that aims to develop conceptual process understanding of the role of ecohydrological system boundaries (interfaces) for the transport and transformation of fluxes of heat, energy and water.  The project aims to create the next generation of supra-disciplinary scientists who are able to cross traditional disciplinary boundaries. You can find more information on the project at the following website.

The Hyporheic Research Network brings together an international research team to address the gaps in knowledge of the physical, chemical and ecological processes that occur within hyporheic zones.  The aim is to investigate how changes in physical streambed conditions control how surface water and groundwater flow through hypoheic zones and in turn alter biogeochemical cycling rates and ecological communities in river systems.  You can find more information on the project at the following website
