Projects

In Zusammenarbeit mit Bund und Kantonen untersucht NAWA SPEZ II mit einem umfassenden Screening, wie stark kleine Fliessgewässern in landwirtschaftlichen Einzugsgebieten mit Pestiziden belastet sind.
EcoImpact is an Eawag-wide interdisciplinary research effort, strongly motivated by the planned modifications of the Swiss wastewater treatment plants.
We investigate human impacts on the community composition of macroinvertebrates and fish in Swiss rivers with statistical analyses of existing monitoring data, food web analyses, and computer models.
...is an inter- and trans-disciplinary research project, studying environmental, health and institutional dimensions of pesticide use in tropical settings
