Groundwater chemistry

Soil water transect along a hillslope. This experiment is layed out as a topographic gradient aligned to follow the lateral flow paths of the groundwater towards one of the streams included in the NyƤnget catchment. Along the gradient at 4, 12 and 22 meters distance from the stream, ceramic lysimeter cups are installed in the ground collecting soil water at different depths.

Information from the S-transect can be used to understand and interpret the transportation and mobilization of chemical compounds trough the ground to the streams via the riparian zone.
