Rise and Fall
13 juni 2016 - 31 juli 2020
Many deltas worldwide are at risk of drowning, due to sea-level rise and land subsidence. Especially peat soils, that often occur in deltas, are prone to land subsidence due to compaction and oxidation of peat. In this research, geographers and biologists work together to investigate the present status and future potential for peat compaction and oxidation, in the organic-clastic subsurface of built-up areas.
