Project description

The proposed research aims to investigate the combination of hydraulic and physical-chemical water quality models with habitat suitability models, in order to develop predictive ecological models for decision support in river management. The specific research goal is to propose a general assessment framework for analyzing the effect of investments in environmental infrastructure (eg wastewater treatment).
