Department Surface Waters - Research and Management

Aquatic Chemistry

Our group follows an interdisciplinary research agenda focused on biogeochemical processes in continental waters. We combine chemical sensors, tracer techniques and modelling to address topics such as

  • the reaction of large lakes and river systems to environmental change,
  • the role of oxic-anoxic boundaries on carbon an nutrient cycles,
  • sustainable strategies for the management of surface waters.

We teach several courses at ETH Zurich,

  • biogeochemistry and environmental chemistry,
  • field and lab courses on aquatic systems,
  • graduate seminar in environmental policy.
