Tracer test in the vicinity of the meto lysimeter

October 18 2017, members of the CLIGRO project carried out a tracer test in the surroundings of the lysimeter having IGME in Doñana. The test consisted in the introduction of three tracers harmless to health and environment (BrK, BrLi, NO3K) in an area of 6 x 3 m2. The injection system was with a watering can.

The test will last 18 months, taking monthly soil samples of 2 m. A sample was taken to measure the value of the tracers before the injection of the tracers.

Field campaign in the lagoon of Santa Olalla

6 members of the project CLIGRO (Claus Kohfahl, Antonio Nicolas Martínez Sánchez de la Nieta, Fernando Ruíz Bermudo, Lidia Molano Leno, Daniel Jesús Martínez Suárez, and Romy David) participated in a field campaign carried out between 18-22 September 2017.

Campaign field in the lagoon of Santa Olalla

During this campaign, 3 points were equipped (Santa Olalla P1, Santa Olalla P2, and Santa Olalla P3) in the surroundings of the lagoon of Santa Olalla with shallow piezometers. In the piezometers of P2 and P3 level, conductivity and temperature sensors for continuous recording were installed. In these points TDR humidity sensors were jointly installed. A meteorological station was also installed.

CLIGRO PROJECT IN PABLO DE OLAVIDE UNIVERSITY

On Thursday May 11 2017, in the framework of the VII seminar series of the Department of Physical, Chemical and Natural Systems of the Pablo de Olavide University, Miguel Rodríguez Rodríguez, member of the research team of the CLIGRO Project, , gave the seminar Andalusian lagoons. Functioning, origin and degradation.”.

Professor Rodriguez looked at the important and diverse heritage lagoons in Andalusia. The variety of geology in this region has influenced, to a large extent, the existence of very different types of lagoons: from small glacial accumulations of low salinity up to extensive and flat hypersaline lagoons located in the countryside.
