A training network for enhancing the understanding of complex physical, chemical and biological process interactions in hyporheic zones

New HypoTRAIN papers out!

We proudly announce the publication of two more journal manuscripts from the HypoTRAIN team: 


Malte´s paper on the "Determination of polar organic micropollutants in surface and pore water by high-resolution sampling-direct injection-ultra high performance liquid chromatography-tandem mass spectrometry"


and Nacho´s paper on "Environmental filtering and community delineation in the streambed ecotone"


3rd HypoTRAIN podcast out now!!!


The podcast gives insights into the second HypoTRAIN joint experiments in the summer of 2017. The ESRs conducted flume experiments to better understand the processes driving attenuation and degradation of micropollutants in river systems. Of course the focus was on the role of the hyporheic zone. Have fun watching!



Interactive map about Joint Field Experiments in Germany available

Joint Field Experiments (JFEs). Study site was the River Erpe, a lowland river receiving 42.500 m3 day-1 of treated waste water from a nearby treatment plant (dry weather conditions). During the daily peaks waste water represents 80% of the overall discharge of the river. The ESRs collaborated in a number of experiments and investigations which were conducted simultaneously in and at the river and its hyporheic zone. This interactive map introduces some of the ESRs and their work at the River Erpe:
