Last Month I started my Phd in the DFG funded “Research Unit Subsurface Stormflow” with a joint Field Campaign.
We excavated multiple trenches and installed drainage-mats. Flow caught on these mats funnels into pipes which will run into tipping buckets, allowing us to measure subsurface flow amounts.
To monitor subsurface flow on the catchment scale, we bore multiple Piezometer well holes using Cobra drills. The resulting soil cores were divided into depth segments and samples were taken. We will analyse the samples water stable isotope composition.
It was nice to meet the very interdisciplenary team and I am looking forward towards the text years and upcoming fieldcampaigns.
