Current global challenges call for a strong interdisciplinary approach to mitigate issues like climate change and biodiversity loss in an ever evolving socio-economic landscape. Water and sediments are at the core of many of the issues being both a commodity and carrier of ecosystem services, making that the management thereof is done wisely and with a good understanding of the underlying processes.
