Klausen-Leopoldsdorf Long term forest monitoring - Austria
Klausen-Leopoldsdorf Long term forest monitoring
The site Klausen-Leopoldsdorf is part of the European Level II Forest Monitoring System in the frame of the International Co-operative Programme on Assessment and Monitoring of Air Pollution Effects on Forests (ICP Forests). The site was established in 1995 and is, since 2006, part of the LTER Austria network. It is situated in a homogenous 80 years-old managed beech stand about 20km west of Vienna. The LTER-CWN research area in Klausenleopoldsdorf is divided into 3 subplots: a measuring weir, a dendrometer/sapflow measuring facility and GHG-chambers for measuring the fluxes of CO2 and other relevant GHG´s. All 3 subplots were installed in 2019 to collect high-resolution data. The measuring weir is located at about 475m a.s.l and the other subplots (denrometer/sapflow, GHG measuring chambers) are located at about 510m a.s.l. The observed catchment of the measuring weir has an area of 46 hectares. The dominating soil types in the catchment are Planosoils and Stagnosols. The subplots are situated in the near vicinity of the ICP-forest plot.
