Within AMBER, DTU will be work package leader for WP4 – case studies. DTU will also be participating in compiling all the information on barriers in Danish rivers, as well draw on our contact to get information from other countries. This will contribute to the European Inventory of Stream Barriers (WP1). DTU will lead a meta study on small barrier adaptation in WP4 and contribute to the WP2 tasks of reviewing the Literature and Development of a Conceptual Framework on Barrier Effects on River Ecology and Processes and Effects of Barriers on Habitat Connectivity and Biota. Additionally, DTU-Aqua will help developing a physical barrier planning (removal and installation) decision support tool in WP3.
