Project coordination: Field site management, data synthesis and modelling of subsoil carbon turnover

The central objective of the coordination subproject is to ensure the close collaboration between all subprojects in order to compile and synthesize all relevant results for model development. Besides the coordination of all field  activities like sampling campaigns, flux measurements and additional field  experiments to ensure common sampling strategies, distribution of subsamples for analyses and compatibility of sampling intervals and analyzed parameters the set-up, management and technical maintenance of the subsoil observatory at Grinderwald are within the responsibility of the PC project.

Further, the development of a conceptual model for an improved understanding of carbon dynamics in subsoils that incorporates the main findings of the subprojects, such as limiting factors or spatial heterogeneity. In detail this project aims to extend and refine the numerical carbon transport and carbon turnover COMISSION model.
