    DescriptionAs a biologist and soil scientist Julia Gebert often finds herself getting her hands dirty. With mud, that is. In the past two years she has many times boarded a small boat to cruise among the huge container ships in the port of Hamburg while collecting mud samples to aid her in her research into sediments in the river Elbe. Mud to her is so much more than a mucky mess. “We need to understand how mud behaves to enable optimal and eco-friendly maintenance of the nautical depth in the port”
