I am interested in the water storage in soils and the runoff formation in small catchments. The main part of my research takes place in the Šumava Mts. where I focus on the influence of peatlands on the outflow from a catchment. The research topics include: the origin of long-term stored water in soil or streams and the impact of climate change on the time in which water flows through the soil system. Part of the research is also focused on soil water storage in agricultural areas in cooperation with other research institutions.
