Limnology is a master course thaught during the spring semester. It focuses on lakes, rivers and reservoirs as aquatic systems. Specific is the quantitative description / analyse of physical, biological, biogeochemical and sedimentological processes and interactions. The goal is to understand the relevant processes (focus on water quality) from a practical point.
Currently the Physics of Aquatic System Laboratory is offering several Master & SIE projects:
“Uncertainty estimation of Gross Primary Production and Ecosystem Respiration based on high-resolution oxygen data”
“Exploring the water quality of Lake Geneva through long-term profiles of electrical conductivity”
