SEDFATE (Sediment fate in a changing watershed during the Anthropocene) is a research project funded by the SNF Sinergia programme, which aims to quantify the processes of sediment production, transfer and deposition in the upper Rhone river basin, Swiss Alps, draining into Lake Geneva. The goal is to study changes in sediment dynamics from source areas to the sink in Lake Geneva using a combination of field observations and experiments, sediment tracing, bathymetric mapping, and hydrological modelling. A particular focus is on explaining the effects of dam construction and flow regulation on the sediment budget and the role of humans in this changing watershed.

Project Partners: Uni Bern, Uni Geneva, Uni Lausanne, ETH Zurich
Begin: 1 February 2014 for a duration of 3 years
