The Nučice catchment was established in 2011 as a long term monitoring site primarily focusing on studying water and sediment transport at headwater agricultural catchments with moderate slopes. Besides the long term monitoring, event-based campaigns were undertaken at the catchment, such as rainfall simulations, artificial flow wave experiments or geophysical monitoring. Currently the catchment is being equipped with soil water content probe network in order to study the soil water regime at the catchment scale.
