Early careers, fine sediment and hydroecology: Supporting Good Ecological Status through research

Workshop for PhD students and early career researchers
Environment Agency, Reading. 27 July 2017

Erosion, transport and deposition of fine sediment (organic and inorganic particles <2mm in diameter) are fundamental processes in the hydrogeomorphic cycle, and river systems require a constant supply in order to function. However, excessive sediment delivery can cause serious deleterious effects to aquatic systems both in suspension and by deposition. This is one of the leading causes for failure to meet Good Ecological Status as set out by the EU Water Framework Directive.

Course Programme 2017

Our new programme of Freshwater Courses for 2017 is now available online and was sent to members with the Winter issue of FBA News.

Our ever popular hands-on courses equip you with the skills and confidence to sample and identify freshwater plants and animals, and provide you with key field and laboratory experience. Tutored by leading experts in freshwater biology and ecology, our courses use a selection of authoritative FBA identification keys.
