A lysimeter is a device for measuring the water balance variables evaporation, precipitation and is normally combined with a quantification of the amount of leachate. The measuring principle is based on the determination of the change in weight of the soil as a result of water absorption and release. The soil under investigation is weighed in a closed container under defined conditions, which allows accurate measurement of the water balance in the soil.
Lysimeters have a wide range of applications:
We offer customized lysimeter solutions, which are tailored to their requirements and needs. The strengths of our system are:
Depending on the application or research question, we offer different lysimeter dimensions
