Ausschreibung : University of Zurich, Department of Geography, Unit Hydrology & Climate
Position : Vacancy for a PhD student in Hydrology, HILLSCAPE – hillslope hydrology and erosion
Beschreibung: Human activities and climate change are rapidly changing the earth’s surface. However, our understanding of how soils change over time and how this influences ecological, hydrological and geomorphological processes is still elementary. Some soil properties are persistent, but others can change rapidly with significant effects on water quantity and quality. This is particularly true at the hillslope scale, where lateral and vertical transport processes interact over different timescales.
