Expedition to Central Asia in the frame of the FluBig project

May 5, 2024

Since a couple of days, a field expedition to the Naryn River in Kyrgyzstan has started in the frame of the “FluBig” project which is dedicated to research on the interaction of hydromorphology and vegetation across multiple scales. The Naryn River is currently still free flowing on a length of more than 600 km what makes it an ideal natural laboratory for studying these interactions. The German team of the expedition consists of Isabell Becker and Gregory Egger from the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology, Magdalena Lauermann from the Catholic University Eichstätt-Ingolstadt and Florian Betz from EORC who is leading the expedition. Soon, two other colleagues from the University of Central Asia will join us as local partners. In the upcoming weeks, we will conduct field surveys of vegetation and hydromorphology and will conduct drone flights. We will post updates from the field, so stay tuned.
