BaSeNet is interested in investigating and quantifying the waterborne transport of matter under changing hydro-climatic conditions on large drainage basin scales. BaSeNet aims to utilize and further develop an already established unique monitoring and modeling platform within Lake Baikal and its main tributary Selenga River Drainage Basin which are considered as a large-scale field laboratory. The area represents a region of the Arctic Ocean catchment, which will also be used for cross-regional comparison with other parts of the world.
