SP2 - Soil water and Solute Balance
Posted by detlef.thuerkow on Thursday, 8 November 2012
Overall objective of SP2 is to evaluate land management practices according to their impact on the soil water and solute balance and the greenhouse gas emissions.
- Establishment, test and fine-tuning of advanced lysimeter technology under field conditions in Russia
- Deepen the understanding of water, solute and C-fluxes in soils of the Kulunda steppe to identify the interrelationship between the impact of degradation and climate change
- Comparative analyses between unconverted and converted grassland into farmland and evaluate the impact of land use changes at the regional level
- Adapting of models to display the water and solute budget as a result of land management and climate change
