  • Description
  • Scope of Supply


Different types of forest have different climate data. Temperature, humidity and light intensity are not only dependent on meteorological factors but also on vegetation. The density of the crown of a forest determines the incidence of light and thus also influences the temperature. The low vegetation density of a managed high forest (in our latitudes mostly beech forests) in turn additionally influences wind movements in the forest, which in turn affects the humidity. In this field experiment we carry out measurements of different forest types on the same day and at about the same time in order to exclude meteorological deviations as far as possible.
