  • Spatio-temporal variability of man-induced sediment mobility in meso-scaled upland catchments (SW Germany) - Quantitative fluxes and chronology of erosion, storage and delivery (funding by DFG)
    • Sediment flux in the Pfälzer Wald area (since 2006)
    • Sediment flux in the Gersprenz catchment (Odenwald uplands) (since 2008-2011)
