Experimental Catchment Nucice

 

Main purpose: Rainfall-runoff processes, soil erosion, sediment transport

- Temporal and spatial distribution of zones involved in runoff generation and sediment transport at the catchment

- Temporal variability in a connectivity of the surface, topsoil and fragipan as a result of macropores and intra-aggregate voids networks

- Non invasive monitoring of the spatial uniformity of compacted subsoil layer

- GIS, distributed soil erosion modelling
