Profile

Rémon Saaltink has a bachelor degree in Biology and a master degree in Environmental Sciences. In February 2014 he started as a PhD candidate focusing on regime shifts and feedbacks during succession. He is supervised by Stefan Dekker, Jasper Griffioen en Martin Wassen.

His research aims to understand how aquatic and wetland ecological processes will feedback and interact with the consolidation and soil forming processes of mud deposits.

On www.markerscience.com, his research is described in greater detail.

Currently, the environmental conditions in lake Markermeer are poor. The Marker Wadden project (initiated by Natuurmonumenten) aims at improving these environmental conditions by constructing islands along the Houtribdike using silt deposits from lake Markermeer. At the moment it is unknown how this ‘fluffy’ material will consolidate and how the aquatic and wetland ecology will develop in this sediment. Furthermore, biotic-abiotic interactions may enhance and influence the consolidation process. The aim of the PhD project is to understand how aquatic and wetland ecological processes will feedback and interact with the consolidation and soil forming processes and also with hydrological and biogeochemical processes.

On www.markerscience.com, his research is described in greater detail.

Here, you can watch the poster clip that was recorded during the EcoSummit of 2016 in Montpellier.
