This page shows details on the project. The primary projects are displayed together with a list of sub-projects.

Project description:The project focuses on soil erosion quantification and prevention of fine sediment input from agricultural areas to channel systems.The research will include a combination of soil erosion modelling, connectivity index calculations and field mapping to determine potential hotspots of fine sediment in GIS. To quantify erosion rates, sediment traps will be installed along slopes and within the riparian zone to additionally examine the effects of different kind of riparian vegetation and topographic properties on fine sediment reduction. The research was held in collaboration with Vienna University.
