Research Topics and Field Sites

The research group Model Driven Monitoring measures and analyses the exchanges of energy, water and trace gases between the terrestrial biosphere and the atmosphere in close interaction with requirements of the modelling groups. We are running eddy covariance towers in three ecosystems: a mixed beech forest, a moist pasture and over agriculture. The group is screening for variables and parameters derived from micrometeorological measurements that help constrain hydrological and ecological models to understand ecosystem functioning and how they will develop in the future under ongoing climate change.


Our Research Topics are:

  • carbon and water cycles of terrestrial ecosystems,
  • ecosystem observations and process understanding,
  • micrometeorological methods,
  • ecohydrology, and
  • climate change impacts on terrestrial ecosystems.


The three measuring stations are the forest site called “Hohes Holz’”, the pasture site “Am Grossen Bruch” and “Hordorf”, an agricultural site. These three study sites are located close to each other in central Germany within the Bode catchment in the foreland of the Harz mountains in Saxony-Anhalt. Since the sites are located in the same climate region, a comparison of the interactions between climate, carbon, water and energy fluxes and land use types is possible.
