S-transect groundwater monitoring

Created 2020-05-08 14:32:46 CET
Began in 1997

Summary

The S-transect was installed 1997 and has been sampled monthly since. The transect consists of ceramic suction lysimeters at 5-7 depths in three plots: the riparian zone 4 m from the stream (S04), 12 m from the stream (S12) and in the up-slope mineral soil 22 m from the stream (S22). The installations are made so that samples can be collected all year by using a heating cable where the water passes through the frozen soil. The hydrology is focused in the upper horizons due to the hydrological conductivity which increases exponentially towards the soil surface.
