Early Careers, Fine Sediment and Hydroecology: Supporting Good Ecological Status through Research

Thursday, July 27, 2017 - 09:00
Environment Agency, Reading

A workshop for PhD students and early career researchers supported by the British Ecological Society Aquatic Group

Erosion, transport and deposition of fine sediment (organic and inorganic particles <2mm in diameter) are fundamental processes in the hydrogeomorphic cycle, and river systems require a constant supply in order to function. However, excessive sediment delivery can cause serious deleterious effects to aquatic systems both in suspension and by deposition. This is one of the leading causes for failure to meet Good Ecological Status as set out by the EU Water Framework Directive.

The aim of this workshop will be to help PhD students and early career researchers to ensure that their work can have a direct impact on the achievement of Good Ecological Status.
