Project Supervisor: Prof Kam W. Tang (k.w.tang@swansea.ac.uk)

Description of Project:

The highly abundant phantom-midge larvae Chaoborus spp. can strongly perturb lake sediment and affect water chemistry via diurnal migration. This project, in collaboration with University of Geneva, combines biology, physics and modelling to investigate the effect of Chaoborus bioturbation on chemical dynamics in lakes. The results will support a better understanding into the “legacy effect” of Chaoborus on lake ecosystem quality and inform more effective and feasible management practices.
