HILLSCAPE (HILLSlope Chronosequence And Process Evolution)

HILLSlope Chronosequence And Process Evolution (HILLSCAPE) is a colaborative multidisciplinary research project of the University of Zurich, the University of Freiburg and the German Research Centre for Geosciences

The HILLSCAPE project focuses on the vertical and lateral redistribution of water and matter along hillslopes and how this redistribution affects and is affected by soil, vegetation and landscape development. The coevolution of these processes is a novel and challenging research field. The overall research question of the project is: How does the hillslope feedback cycle evolve in the first 10,000 years and how is this related to the evolution of hillslope structure, including plant cover?
