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:

  • Zöbelboden (forest composed of spruce, fir and beech)
  • Demonstration forest Rosalia (beech forest)
  • Klausen-Leopoldsdorf (beech forest)
  • Stubai (grassland + forest composed of spruce and larch)
  • Pürgschachener Moor (wetland)
  • Lake Neusiedl (wetland)

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

  • Zöbelboden (forest composed of spruce, fir and beech)
  • Demonstration forest Rosalia (beech forest)
  • Stubai (grassland)
  • Pürgschachener Moor (wetland)
  • Lake Neusiedl (wetland)

Measuring chambers for measuring carbon dioxide release from soil:

  • Zöbelboden (forest composed of spruce, fir and beech)
  • Demonstration forest Rosalia (beech forest)
  • Klausen-Leopoldsdorf (beech forest)
  • Stubai (grassland + forest composed of spruce and larch)
  • Pürgschachener Moor (wetland)

Sap flow measuring system for determining of stand transpiration:

  • Zöbelboden (forest composed of spruce, fir and beech)
  • Demonstration forest Rosalia (beech forest)
  • Klausen-Leopoldsdorf (beech forest)

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

  • Zöbelboden (forest composed of spruce, fir and beech)
  • Demonstration forest Rosalia (beech forest)
  • Klausen-Leopoldsdorf (beech forest)
  • Stubai (grassland)

Level measurement for studying runoff in catchment area:

  • Zöbelboden (forest composed of spruce, fir and beech)
  • Demonstration forest Rosalia (beech forest)
  • Klausen-Leopoldsdorf (beech forest)
  • Stubai (grassland + forest composed of spruce and larch)
  • Pürgschachener Moor (wetland)
  • Lake Neusiedl (wetland)

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

  • Zöbelboden (forest composed of spruce, fir and beech)
  • Demonstration forest Rosalia (beech forest)
  • Klausen-Leopoldsdorf (beech forest)
