Retreat on 12 Jan, 2021

While usually framed by nice group activities (hiking, snowball fight, bowling, canoeing, …), Covid forced us to keep our distance on our retreat this year. So, a lot of time to concentrate on future projects and publications. But barbecue and hike will follow!

Tz-Ching Yeh finished her PhD

We congratulate Tz-Ching Yeh for finishing her PhD on „Effects of Extreme Events on Aquatic Organic Matter Dynamics“ at the University of Natural Resources and Life Sciences, Vienna (BOKU)
in November 2020. You can find her papers in the publication list of our website. Enjoy reading

Paper „Portable SEnor system“ online

Within the project „Organic Carbon ORCA“, a portable sensor for DOM fluorescence indices was developed. The paper is online now: „Brandl, M., T. Posnicek, R. Preuer, G. Weigelhofer (2020) A Portable Sensor System for Measurement of Fluorescence Indices of Water Samples. IEEE SENSORS JOURNAL. 10.1109/JSEN.2020.2988588.“

Paper „A multi-scale, integrative modeling framework for setting conservation priorities …..“ published

A multi-scale, integrative modeling framework for setting conservation priorities at the catchment scale for the Freshwater Pearl Mussel Margaritifera margaritifera“ published in Sci Tot Environ (20 May 2020). An ecohydrological modeling cascade was developed on the base of hydrological, hydraulic, sand accumulation, and species distribution models in order to indentify and prioritize the sites for life-stage-specific conservation actions for the freshwater pearl mussel.
