Installing lysimeters in summer 2004

concrede foundation
  • A concrete foundation has to be fixed at the given lysimeter position in the pit.

• The lysimeter vessel has to be turned around again and probes (tensiometers, gypsum blocks, sensors for soil temperature, TDR and geophysical probes) are installed in different depths into the soil of the cylinder; cables of the probes are put into tubes (see tubes on top of the vessel in figure 4).

• A weighing equipment with three load cells is fixed on the concrete foundation and rods for fine tuning the load cells are mounted.

• The container is carefully put on bases at the weighing frame.

Parts of the soil may break off!
