Weserbergland - Apelern, Lower Saxony, Germany
In our project ConFor “Ecohydrological connectivity between trees and the capillary zone - a key driver for drought resilience of European forests?” we investigate how well European Forests are ecohydrologically connected to the capillary fringe - the nearly water-saturated zone above the groundwater - and how this changes throughout a year and under different climatic conditions (e.
