[ID: 213] Wetland restoration and its effect on brownification of surface waters

PI: Marcus Wallin

The focus is on the wetland restoration project at Trollberget. Monitoring of ground and stream water will start prior to the operations and last for the full project period. The restored wetlands will be compared with two non-restored wetland catchments in order to detect any effects on water quality. The spatial dimension of the project will be explored by additional sampling (synoptic surveys) of restored and non-restored wetlands over large geographical regions of Sweden. The results will be fundamental for future management and conservation strategies of boreal wetlands and for keeping good water quality of water resources in Sweden.

[ID: 164] What is the effect of climate change on water quality in boreal and temperate catchments? Studying water transit times in long time-series and their coupling to biogeochemical processes

PI: Andrés Peralta Tapia

In this project, we will have the unique opportunity to integrate state-of-the-art estimates of catchment transit time with a wealth of existing and ongoing stream monitoring data to determine how hydrological transit time variation shape stream biogeochemical patterns within drainage networks. The combination of hydrological modeling, stream chemistry monitoring, and isotopic analysis will provide a powerful opportunity to advance our understanding of how catchments function as biogeochemical units.
