In these modules, students will analyze interactions between selected geo-ecosystem components in a model project using appropriate geo-ecological field, laboratory and model experiments. Primarily, interdisciplinary interactions (abiotic-biotic-anthropogenic components) will be addressed. In individual cases, sub-disciplinary-internal interaction networks are also possible (e.g. biotic-biotic such as plant - soil fungi, or abiotic-abiotic such as soil water - runoff etc.).

Qualification Goals

Acquire the ability to analyze a specific interaction network of a geo-ecosystem with appropriate experiments, as well as use their predictive ability when applying numerical models. In the case of field and laboratory experiments, the construction of a suitable experimental design as well as its implementation and evaluation is a central learning objective of the work. When dealing with numerical models, their adaptation to the thematic problem (programming, parameterization, validation) and system replication for thematic evaluation is a particular topic of the teaching unit.
