Ecosystem and landscape water balance in LTER Research Site Stubai Valley, Austria


The main object of the project was to quantify the basic parameters of ecosystem water balance of agricultural areas managed with varying intensity starting at the valley bottom and going up to the alpine zone in the Stubai Valley (Tirol)to analyse the influence of land use and possible climate changes on the water balance of alpine grassland ecosystems. The dataset provides data values about evapotranspiration and related paramters of microclimate, soil water balance and plant physiology. In addition soil characterization and physical soil analysis were performed. The dataset also contains a shapefile representing the sampling points within the LTER Research Site Stubai Valley.
