Measuring infrastructure at LTER-CWN-sites at a glance

In the framework of LTER-CWN-project a coherent network of similar equipped measurement sites will be established. The six sites contain the characteristic ecosystems of Austria.

Microclimate stations for gathering near-surface climate data:

Eddy Covariance-Tower for determining carbon dioxide- and water exchange:

Measuring chambers for measuring carbon dioxide release from soil:

Sap flow measuring system for determining of stand transpiration:

High-resolution dendrometer for detection of drought stress and increment of trees:

Pore water sampler for determining the concentration of dissolved nitrogen and carbon in soil water:

Level measurement for studying runoff in catchment area:

Multiparameter sensor for high-resolution measurements nitrate and carbon runoff in catchment area:
