From September 20 to 26 dynamic penetration tests using a lightweight dynamic cone penetrometer (DCP) were conducted throughout the Laternser valley. Combined with geophysics an area-wide soil depth model will be derived. I personally want to stress out the extraordinary commitment of our two BSc-students Leo and Maria in the field dropping the 10kg hammer nearly 30.000 times!
In addition sprinkling experiments were repeated under forest cover. Special thanks go to the team of our project partner BfW (Klebinder K. and Sortier B.) as well as Rutzinger M. and Österreicher A. for their assistance in the field. We also want to thank the municipal administration of Laterns for all their great support as well as the ski resort Laterns for providing the water supply.
