Within this training course, PhD students and early post-docs will be initiated in experimental methodology to investigate the effect of animal activity on biogeochemical cycling in both sediments and the water column.

Class-room lectures will provide participants with an overview on the recent developments in the research field and will be combined with hands on experiments on both hard- and soft substrate biogeochemical cycling (optode and electrode techniques, nutrient cycling, bio-irrigation) using state-of-the art experimental equipment.

Lectures on ecosystem and oceanographic modeling will be combined with hands-on training to showcase how local processes can be scaled up to regional scales. Finally, students will be initiated in the application of obtained results in a managerial context by means of ecosystem indicators.
