AgroScapeLab Quillow (ZALF) - Germany

Basic Information
Site Name
AgroScapeLab Quillow (ZALF)
Short name
DE-07-UM
Country
Germany
Site Description
The site covers the whole catchment of the small river “Quillow” and it is called “AgroScapeLab Quillow”. It is located in the north-east lowlands (Uckermark) which is about 90 km North of Berlin and has an area of about 160 km2. It’s a hummocky landscape characterized by gently rolling hills which are the results of glaciation during the Pleistocene. Unconsolidated sediments in a complex setting dominate. The soil pattern of the Quillow catchment is related to topography and the heterogeneity of Pleistocenic deposits. Albic Luvisols, Calcaric Regosols, Calcic Luvisols and Gleyic-Colluvic Regosols can be found. Another result of the ice age forces are the kettle holes (little ponds) which developed in drainless depressions. 74 % of the land is in agricultural use. Small forest patches can be found in the western and southwestern part of the catchment, grassland more in the eastern lowlands. In general the area is only sparsely populated. The ZALF research platform is located in Dedelow
