Site Description
Paired experimental watersheds in sub-humid tropical climate, plus nested watersheds, located in South India in the Kabini watershed Experimental watersheds : - Mule Hole (semi-deciduous dry forest), monitored since 2003, 4.3 km2 - Maddur (cultivated), monitored since 2005, 7.1 km2 for evaluating the influence of agriculture on water and biogeochemical cycle in sub-humid tropics, and the effect of the monsoon variability on these cycles

Purpose
2 paired experimental watersheds, one pristine (forest, Mule Hole) the other cultivated (Maddur) were initially set up in South India to estimate the influence of agriculture on chemical weathering intensity in sub-humid tropics. The goal has evolved for the cultivated watershed towards the study of the agriculture impact on the groundwater resource and quality in a context of intense groundwater pulmping and high climatic fluctuations.
