CRITEX tools

A key point in the success of CRITEX will be the ability of all groups to work together and share the common equipment through relevant research projects.

The equipment program is organized into two main objectives:

  • High frequency measurements in order to close energy and matter budgets at the catchment scale.
  • The pluridisciplinary investigation of hot spots and hot moments in Critical Zone Observatories

Each objective is organized in Work Packages (WP) themselves subdivided in Work Tasks, each Task having one or several leaders.

Tables of the different WP and associated tasks :

High frequency measurements Sequencial monitoring
WP 1: Soil-atmosphere exchanges WP 5: Surface mapping
WP 2: Water pulsations WP 6: Subsurface exploration
WP 3: Temperature WP 7: Deep waters
WP 4: High frequency geochemestry WP 8: Tracing methods
