In our last release, we study how the internal heterogeneity of biofilms enhances fluid mixing and reactions and biologically driven reactions, e.g., bioaccumulation, within porous media. This is a manuscript from Ishaan Markale! This has been published in Environmental Science & Technology in collaboration with UC Davis and WSL!
SEP Group in the cover of Eawag Annual Report 2022! This document highlights the Eawag commitment to the education of undergraduate and doctoral students in natural, engineering, and social sciences.
Zahra Hajian joined our group in May 2023. Welcome Zahra!
Dorothee Kurz's paper on how both biofilm clustering and its internal permeability contribute to the fluid velocity variability in porous media is now been published in Environmental Science and Technology.
A new publication in Water Resources Research in collaboration with CSIC-Barcelona colleagues (Ilian Ben-Noah, Juan Hidalgo, and Marco Dentz) on the mechanisms behind the anomalous transport in unsaturated porous media.
Ishaan Markale has successfully defended his PhD thesis! Congrats, Ishaan!
A new educational and engaging publication! Thanks to Water Science Policy. The importance of agricultural practices in protecting groundwater - To drip or not to drip? Understanding nitrogen leaching in semi-arid Spain
Dorothee Kurz's paper is now published in the Journal of Visualized Experiments. We present a microfluidic platform and the protocol of use to study biofilm development in quasi-2D porous media.
A new publication in Interface Focus in collaboration with Secchi's group on the role of biofilm matrix composition in controlling the expansion and morphology of the colonies.
New publication, with colleagues from the Department of Water Resources and Drinking Water at Eawag and collaborators from the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology, on the use of microfluidics, in combination with optical microscopy and X-ray spectroscopy, to investigate arsenic retention from zerovalent iron-based water treatment in Environmental Science & Technology.
