TERENO - Bad Lauchstaedt
Parent Site Name
The Experimental Research Station in Bad Lauchstädt allows scale-dependent experimental investigations of different ecological systems in climatic chambers, heated and unheated greenhouses as well as in field sites on an area of 40 ha. The experiments contribute to a better understanding of the complex relationships in the soil-plant-atmosphere system. In particular, factors arising from the changes in land use, climate and species pool system are investigated. Thus, the experimental station Bad Lauchstädt is the experimental basis for numerous departments of the UFZ.
General Characteristics, Purpose, History
The main focus of research is on experiments simulating global change, thus climate and land use change. This is mainly addressed by GCEF Global Change Experimental Facility, the static fertilization experiment, a lysimeter station, succession experiments, oak phytometers, intensive measuring fields, an incremental farmyard manure experiment and small plot experiments.
