Trend analysis from the Lehstenbach catchment
Acidification is still an ecological threat
These dramatic pictures show how soil acidification is still an ecological threat in Bavaria. These photographs of the same tree were taken (from left to right) on the 22nd August 1996, 18th October 1997, and 16th June 1999.
To understand the main processes that govern the recovery of aquatic ecosystems it is important to evaluate the chemistry of soil and soil solution.
These photographs were taken by Pedro Gerstberger (BITOK- University of Bayreuth)
