Your tasks at a glance
Climate and land use change influence hydro-biogeochemical processes. For tropical Africa, scientific knowledge about the impact of global change on these processes is limited. Since 2014, automatic monitoring systems have been recording high-resolution discharge, NO3, DOC and TSS in the Mau Forest project area (Kenya). Using statistical methods (wavelets, hysteresis, hydrological signatures), indicators are derived to describe hydro-biogeochemical processes.
