Project duration November 2022-October 2025

Project Goals

The main aims of the project are:

Goal 1

To investigate the suitability of hyperspectral imagery and dense multispectral time series for determining and assessing SOC content of peatland soils and other relevant properties in wet grassland,

Goal 2

Interpret the spatial distribution patterns of SOC and vegetation characteristics

Goal 3

Compare different methods for assessing the impacts of land use practices and their interactions with associated ecosystem services and biodiversity; and

Goal 4

Model long-term temporal changes in SOC content and simulate scenarios for future SOC trends using information from long- and short-range sensing.

Project MoorgrünFE

Several grassland areas were selected for the project across Germany.
The selection was based  on peatland type  and land use (e.g. grassland, rewetting).

Region 1: ZALF Grassland sites

Two grassland areas are selected as main pilot areas.

Region 2: Other wet grassland sites

The project will survey areas of the paludiculture pilot sites on which rewetting measures are being implemented․․․

Monitoring of transformation processes

We systematically record the interactions between abiotic (climate, soil, water balance) and biotic (vegetation, species, habitats) components as well as different management measures of wet grasslands.
