Subproject: Landscape Ecology

Structural an functional analysis of abiotic landscape elements


The consequences of changes in landuse are estimated on a regional scale by the means of a sample of methods named DILAMO (Digital Landscape Modelling). The simulation program WASMOD is used for balancing fluxes of water and substances in a high temporal and spacial resolution. The system AIS is developed to show important variables and processes in the balance of water, carbon and nutrients in a high temporal resolution. By this means it is possible to analyse the heterogeneous effects of measures used in plant production and adapt them to smaller scales. Because "Hof Ritzerau" is a long-term project with many staff members we develope a method for long-term data storage with integrated storing of metadata. A huge fraction of all spatial data of the project is presented via a mapserver.
