Nutrient transport, fate and processing in river networks is controlled by multiple drivers interacting at different scales. Within the UFZ PhD college inSTREAM, we investigate those drivers. Based on our work in inSTREAM, we want to introduce the drivers, the scales at which they act and how human activities change those drivers. During the course, you will learn how ecology (riverine food web structure, ecological stoichiometry, metabolism), catchment and stream network characteristics (land use, topography) and hydrology (discharge and nutrient pathways) can drive the transport and fate of nutrients in riverine networks. We will combine theory, underlying concepts with data exercises and interpretation. Our aim is to give you hands-on experience on datasets from the respective fields.

This course is interesting for all researchers who want to get a holistic understanding on nutrient processing in river networks.
