Laboratories Environmental Sciences Group Facebook Twitter Whatsapp Google Linkedin Email Soil Physics Laboratory The soil physics lab is part of Wageningen Environmental Research (Alterra). Thereby the lab is an integral part of the research and advisory work done in the field of 'soil-water-atmosphere'. In the lab we do measurements on soil samples, mostly to determine how water, gas and nutrients move through or are retained in the soil. Chemical Biological Soil Laboratory (CBLB) CBLB is een toonaangevend laboratorium voor chemische analyses in grond-, gewas- en watermonsters. DendroLab - Dendrochronology Laboratory Research on Dendrochronology and Quantitative Wood Anatomy is conducted on different topics related to Forest Ecology and Forest Management. Ecology Laboratory The mission of the ecology lab is to gain deeper insight into the workings of ecosystems all over the world. One crucial part of this mission is to unravel and determine the interactions between climate and vegetation. Laboratory for Environmental Risk Assessment (ERA Lab) The risk assessment facilities form the pulsating heart of the Environmental Risk Assessment (ERA) Laboratory, where the Wageningen Environmental Research (Alterra) research team gauges the effects of stressors on the environment by expertly combining measurement, analyses, and experimentation. Laboratory for Aquatic Ecology The Laboratory for Aquatic Ecology carries out research on organisms and substances. It looks at how they behave, how certain substances affect organisms, and how substances and organisms behave in interaction with their environment. Important themes include micro-contaminations, the effects of global warming, invertebrates, nutrients, blue algae, marine plastics, and nanomaterials. Animal Ecology Laboratory Animal ecology research focuses on the influence of social activities on ecosystem functionality, the resulting pressure this puts on the environment, the state and recovery capabilities of nature and the environment and the impact of biodiversity and health risks for humans. It also contributes to the development of sustainable policy and management solutions. NCL - Netherlands Centre for Luminescence dating At the Netherlands Centre for Luminescence dating we develop new and improved luminescence dating methods, and we apply luminescence dating in collaboration with NCL partners and external users. Kraijenhoff van de Leur Laboratory for Water and Sediment Dynamics The experimental research of the Laboratory for Water and Sediment Dynamics mainly focuses on morphological responses to channel flow and overland flow. Current research topics are in the fields of stream restoration, gully erosion and side channels created by longitudinal dams.
