Lysimeter Station Wagna
Installing lysimeters in summer 2004

Figure 7: Fine tuning of lysimeter

  • The vessel is elevated on the load cells using the rods for fine tuning (see figure 7).

If the lysimeter “wags,” you can tell that the lysimeter is placed on the load cells.

• A mobile ring is also put on top of the outer cylinder and soil is backfilled.

Make sure that soil does not get into the gap between the two cylinders.
