Research Projects in INTERFACES


There are 15 sub-projects within the INTERFACES ITN. Please click on any of the below to find out more about the individual projects.


ESR1: Airborne and ground-based up-scaling of findings on groundwater-surface water interactions at aquifer-lake and aquifer-stream interfaces

ESR2: Detection of the onset/cessation of hydrological connectivity in the hillslope-riparian-stream continuum via Thermal IR imagery and terres-trial diatom tracing

ESR3: Further developing optical sensing techniques to analyse spatially con-tinuous oxygen distribution at the water-sediment interface

ESR4: Managing the impact of streambed interface zones on the carbon cycle at catchment scale

ESR5: Effects of hydrogeomorphology and temperature on carbon cycling in stream gravel bars

ESR6: Development of methods for detection of viruses in aquatic environments and their interactions with bacteria in biofilms

ESR7: Developing methodologies/strategies to monitor the effects of hydrological extremes (droughts and floods) on biogeochemical cycling at terrestrial-aquatic interfaces

ESR8: Development of methods to estimate rates, controlling factors and mechanisms of N cycling processes at different reactive interfaces

ESR9: Hot spots of turnover along ventilated burrows of macrozoobenthos

ESR10: Aquifer-surface water interfaces as hotspots for interconnected carbon and nitrogen cycling and greenhouse gas production

ESR11: Quantifying the cumulative effects of nitrogen buffering hotspots at the catchment scale

ER1: FO-DTS and FO-iDAS for distributed heat and acoustic tracing

ER2: Integrated modeling for up-scaling bio-reactivity at interface hotspots

ER3: Developing and testing new molecular techniques to evaluate the microbial interactions based on application of real-time PCR methods

ER4: The potential of integrated sensor and tracing technologies for identifying large scale impacts of ecohydrological interfaces
