Human impact on aeolian sediment transport on a beach
The Nature Based Solutions the Sand Engine (NBS) near Den Hague aims to maintain the coastal safety by functioning as a sediment source for wind and water erosion. The sediment transported by wind is needed to maintain the current ...

Mitigating soil degradation and water contamination after wildfires
Forest fires are a recurring problem in Mediterranean regions, and increasingly occurring in northern Europe. Burnt areas are highly susceptible to soil erosion and ash exports, with associated organic and metal contaminants which ...

Fresh groundwater lenses (FGL) below atoll islands in the Pacific Ocean
Project Description The small island developing states (SIDS) are the first to be hit seriously by sea level rise and climate change. Besides increased flooding and coastal erosion, freshwater lenses below islands will shrink and ...

Effects of soil slope stabilization treatments on soil erosion and plant recovery after wildfires.
Problem context Postfire restoration practices encompass those which aim to reduce negative wildfire impacts and to improve burned area rehabilitation. Mulching, Contour-felled log debris (CFD) and log erosion barriers (LEB) are ...

Microplastic detection in soils using spectroscopy and chemometrics
Project Description Microplastics are emerging pollutants that pose an environmental threat. New questions are arising about their impact in aquatic and continental environments. However, research has been jeopardized by the lack ...

Isolation of plastic-lasas or enzymes that can decay oil-based plastics. Project
Project Description Light density Polyethylene is one of the oil-based plastics widely distributed. And due to the mismanagement of the residues of this plastic. It is possible to find light density polyethylene microplastics in  ...

HESOM-Modeling the Hydrologic and Erosion responses following wildfires and its mitigation.
Wildfires can lead to considerable changes in geo-morphological and hydrological processes. Researchers have shown strong and sometimes extreme responses in post-fire runoff and soil erosion, especially during the earlier stages o ...

Effects of contour bunds and organic amendments on plant survival and erosion in recently burned areas
Wildfires create a range of problems connected to the complete loss of aboveground biomass and vegetation cover.The resulting uncovered soil is extremely susceptible to erosion and microclimatic conditions that could help with the ...

Investigating Carbon fluxes with time since wildfire
Wildfires affect forest carbon pools directly, through combustion/heating processes, and indirectly, by changing abiotic (e.g. soil temperature) and biotic (e.g. leaf area index) conditions. The indirect impacts appear to be impor ...

Post-fire wind erosion in the coastal zone of north-central Portugal
As widely known, 2017 was a particularly dramatic year in Portugal in terms of fatalities by wildfires. Also the total area burnt was exceptional in 2017, well-exceeding those of the record years of 2003 and 2005. This included a  ...
