Physics of Aquatic Systems Laboratory APHYS

Physics of Aquatic Systems Laboratory (APHYS)
The aims of the APHYS Laboratory are to understand the physical processes in natural waters and specifically the responses and sensitivities of aquatic systems to external forcing. The main focus is on anthropogenic influences, such as nutrient and particle inputs, hydropower production, use of heat and cold from natural waters, and climate change.
