As part of the intensive forest environmental monitoring, representatively selected forest locations are equipped with measurement technology to continuously monitor important key parameters such as the condition of the crown, atmospheric substance inputs and soil water. The data should allow conclusions to be drawn about the ecological functions of the forests and their possible impairment, and help to identify any new phenomena at an early stage.
More than 40 countries are involved in this Europe-wide forest monitoring as part of the Interna-tional Co-operative Program on Assessment and Monitoring of Air Pollution Effects on Forests (ICP Forests).
Last week, we supported LANUV with the installation and commissioning of a measuring system that is intended to expand this measuring net-work. We are looking forward to the first results.
