Hydrological modeling of contaminant transfer within agricultural catchments and associated wetland

publié le , mis à jour le

Research question
Modelling the impact of hydrological behaviour on contaminant transfer within the agricultural catchment and associated wetlands.

Our approach consists in field- and lab-based experimental studies and integrates hydrological, analytical, mineralogical, isotope and microbial methods and techniques to better understand the reactive transfer of contaminant in complex and dynamic environmental systems.

Main results
The developed models can reproduce the hydrological dynamics of the system “Agricultural catchment - artificial wetland linked”. In addition these models can be used to evaluate how flood protection and mitigation objectives can be combined in artificial wetlands. Present studies focus on the modelling of transfer of chloroacetamide herbicides from the fields to the artificial wetlands.

Illustration of the integration of various scales for studying the hydrological impact on contaminant transfer : modeling the impact of within-storm variability on runoff-related pesticide transport at the plot scale without soprtion (R1), for moderetley sorbed pesticide (R5) and strongly sorbed (R25) (on the left, collaboration with Christoph Hinz, University of Western Australia) and modelling of hydrological connectivity within a vineyard catchment (on the right, collaboration with Vicotr Jetten, University of Twente, The Netherlands)

Coupling the fate of contaminants with hydrological models developped at the scales of the agricultural catchments and artificial wetlands. Developping a tracer toolbox to improve the understanding of the contaminants flowpaths within these systems and better calibrate and validate the distributed hydrological models.
