Context

As part of a Research and Technology Organization (RTO), the work of the Environmental Research and Innovation (ERIN) Department tackles some of the major environmental challenges our society is facing today, such as climate change mitigation, ecosystem resilience, sustainable energy systems, the efficient use of renewable resources. The intern will join ERIN’s Environmental Research and Technology Platform (ERTP). She/He will be part of ERTP’s Observatory for Climate and Environment (OCE) platform. The OCE operates different types of dense and national networks of hydroclimatology and biodiversity measurements. The successful candidate will join OCE to work in managing hydro-geochemcial data of one of the river basin of Luxembourg. More precisely the internship is concerned with the processing, managing, quality control and analysing the long-term water quality data and develop water quality index of the selected basin in Luxembourg.

Description

The purpose of this internship is to:

  • Process and quality control of the long-term hydro-geochemical data at the attert basin
  • Employing integrated physiochemical approaches and statistical techniques for evaluating the effect of natural and anthrpogenic activites on the overall water quality (surface and groundwater) at the Attert basin
  • Develop an water quality index for the Attert Basin

Profile
