7 Kindla Integrated Monitoring site (SE)

Kindla

eLTER TA site

  • Dominant ecosystem: Boreal forest and taiga
  • Access: 200 km from Stockholm. Open all year around, although access may be difficult during snow-melt in the spring
  • DEIMS site code: LTER_EU_SE_001_002

A highly instrumented, forested catchment, part of the ICP-Integrated Monitoring network. Measurements include meteorology, hydrology, soil physics, mineralogy and chemistry, pore water/groundwater composition, surface water and biology. Vegetation (all plants from trees to bryophytes) is recorded at regular intervals from a grid with permanent plots. Scientific focus: research focuses on ecosystem hydrological balances and chemical budgets, climate and hydrological modelling, as well as acidification, eutrophication and biodiversity. Main achievements include important contributions to acidification research.
