Florian Wilken is a PhD-Student working in the TERENO Erosion Observation System (TEROS) since February 2014.
Within the TEROS project Florian measures and models erosion induced redistribution of soil organic carbon in a kettle hole in the Uckermark, Germany.

He did his MSc in Physical Geography at the University of Cologne and was awarded a scholarship of the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD) at the Indo-German Centre for Sustainability of the IIT Madras to carry out his master thesis. His MSc thesis deals with land use and land management dynamics in a catchment of tropical South India.

His research interests include:

  1. process oriented measuring and modelling of sediment redistribution by water and tillage erosion
  2. related geobiochemical processes on arable land
  3. Remote sensing and GIS-based analysis of land use und land management dynamics.
