stable isotope ratios act as naturally-occurring tracers for natural topic, making attainable, less than convinced stipulations, the quantification of coastal-offshore exchanges. mostly, natural topic has isotope ratios attribute of its beginning (e. g. vegetation with various modes of photosynthesis and assorted development stipulations, anthropogenic compounds). those ratios are maintained because the natural subject strikes throughout the biosphere and geosphere. a mix of natural subject from assets has isotope ratios intermediate among these of the 2 resources, in share to the fraction of fabric from every one resource. Isotope ratios are one of many few equipment that could hint natural topic because it strikes via usual ecosystems. Ratios might be measured on either the whole natural subject and on specific chemical fractions or compounds. while used on organisms, isotope ratios supply details of natural topic really assimilated into physique tissues, not only fabric ingested. as with any instruments, this technique has sure obstacles which needs to be borne in brain whilst analyzing its effects. first of all, particular environmental stipulations needs to be met. This usually skill an surroundings with a restricted and identified variety of assets of natural subject having diversified isotope ratios. resources with diverse isotope ratios are perfect; extra assets with different isotope ratios complicate interpretation. Secondly, the variation in isotope ratios of the 2 resources can be huge in comparison with analytical variability. Thirdly, the ratios inside of every one resource may still fluctuate as low as possible.

Management transdisziplinärer Forschungsprozesse

Die Forderung nach einer transdisziplinären Forschung klingt plausibel und wird schnell erhoben, aber bei der konkreten Umsetzung ergeben sich eine Reihe von Problemen. Die vorliegende Studie widmet sich ausführlich der Frage, wie transdisziplinär geforscht werden kann. Als Mitarbeiter der Projektleitung konnte Marc Mogalle aktiv am Forschungsprozess des Integrierten Projektes Gesellschaft I des Schwerpunktprogramms Umwelt teilnehmen und es intensiv untersuchen.
