Instrumenting the Litla-Skard catchment (Iceland)

Here is a short video explaining some of the work we’ve been doing on our first research trip instrumenting the Litla-Skard catchment in Iceland.

The video and the photographs below show one of the two monitoring points that we have set-up this week. These automated water quality monitoring points will be supplemented by manual grab samples of water quality on a monthly basis, and these data will be supported by an on-site meteorogical and hydrological gauging station, in addition to survey data on the soil types, geology, and vegetation types within the catchment.

The purpose of instrumenting this site is explained in more detail in my previous blog article which is available here.
