The project CHARM aims at contributing to a better understanding between reservoir management and its impact on the surrounding environment and the reservoir itself. CHARM is a multidisciplinary research project addressing five fundamental issues of reservoir management: sedimentation, biostabilization, harmful cyanobacterial blooms, greenhouse gas emissions, and societal implications. These issues are tackled through analytical approaches, field monitoring, laboratory experiments and numerical models, thus gaining insights into the involved processes at different scales. The project outcomes will support the development of reservoir management strategies to meet challenges related to increasing anthropogenic impacts on water bodies and to climate and demographic changes resulting in altered energy and water demands.
