Watershed Ecology and Biogeochemistry

Date: 13 September 2017 - 20 September 2017
Location: Sweden

‘Watershed Ecology and Biogeochemistry’ addresses the foundational concepts and modern challenges within the broad field of watershed science. Here we will take an integrative approach that focuses on the hydrological, biogeochemical and ecological connections between upland, riparian, and aquatic components of forest landscapes. Specific topics includes: 1) an overview of catchment hydrology and water balance, 2) elemental transport and processing along hillslopes and riparian zones, 3) controls over material exchange at the land-water interface, 4) biogeochemical cycling in streams and rivers, 5) the biogeochemical significance of wetlands and lakes within catchments, and 6) the interface between forest management and watershed science in boreal lands. General themes in watershed science will be explored through discussions of literature that will be coordinated with short lectures. More specific questions and methodological approaches will be introduced using a series of excursions and activities within the Krycklan catchment.
