AI2. Lacustrine and reservoir systems

The research line focuses on carbon cycling in Mediterranean reservoirs, the impacts of climate change on their water quality, and the effects of antibiotic pollution on reservoir bacterial assemblages.

Interdisciplinary and cross-scale approaches are distinctive traits of our research.

Specific objectives are:

· Biogeochemical processes study in lakes and reservoirs

· Changes in the biological structure study and functioning of lakes and reservoirs with respect to climate and global changes

· Role of reservoirs in managing water scarcity and in the quality of the drinking water

· Reservoirs's function study in the context of a river basin
