Within the project Forest Site Classification Styria we will conduct site surveys and soil sampling for hydropedological analytics for sub-regions of the project area. In collaboration with BFW Innsbruck we calculate hydropedological characteristica and model water budgets and drought stressindices for the whole project area. We also contribute to the regionalization of carbon and nutrient status of soils and to the development of the dynamic forest site model.
