Caspar Cusell investigates the biogeochemical and ecological effects of allowing more variation in surface water levels in freshwater wetlands that currently show more or less constant water levels. His main objective is to determine the potential beneficial and harmfull effects of lowered and raised surface water levels on the biogeochemical and ecological functioning of fens, with a strong emphasis on brownmoss-dominated rich fens.
