Start of the field campaign

The first project meeting of the Carbon-4D project took place between the 7th and 10th of September in the Fichtel Mountains. We installed profile probes for soil temperature and moisture measurements. From now on, the 15 soil probes will be moved every four weeks to measure at several different sites. Furthermore, we perform chamber measurements and analyses soil cores. The measured data will be used for the development of a 4D model for the mineralization of soil organic carbon on a landscape scale.
