MNO Monitoring nature development near Heusden (LO) [MNO Monitoring natuurontwikkeling ter hoogte van Heusden (LO)]

Availability: Restricted
The data are withheld from general circulation and disclosure but access may be obtained on a case-by-case basis through negotiation

Description
By analogy with other nature development areas, parameters are measured along several transects near Heusden LO. In total 5 transects are defined by which 16 permanent squares are situated.

Profiles: Theodo-lite and level-meter
Sedimentation/erosion: Sedimentation-erosion plots
A sedimentation-erosion plot exists out of 3 cores that are fixed into the mudflat. The 1,5 m long cores are set up in a triangular position, 1500 mm h.o.h. (length is 1500mm). The cores form a horizontal reference plane of which the reference height TAW is known. When strong sedimentation or erosion has taken place, the cores are prolonged or shortened. Core 1 and core 2 are connected by means of a measurement row, so the distance to the bottom can be measured each 20 cm. After that core 2 an
Stable organic chlorine pollutants (SOCP): PIH laboratory analyses
Some of the sediment analysis is put out to the PIH laboratory (Provinciaal Instituut voor Hygiene, Provincie Antwerpen)
Vegetation: Permanent squares (PQ)
Along the river, spread over the different vegetation types, a large number of permanent squares are marked.
Zinc (Zn): PIH laboratory analyses
Some of the sediment analysis is put out to the PIH laboratory (Provinciaal Instituut voor Hygiene, Provincie Antwerpen)
