On moderately to strongly sloped fens it is necessary to fill up the drainage ditches completely. The filling material [...]
At this stage of the project, only pilot tests have been done. PLD efficiency has been proven in lab scale and research of industrial hosting site resp. involvement of an additional partner for implantation and operation of the first pilot plant is on-going. Expected results: The PLD process will achieve [...]
The most important expected results are: 1. A map of changes in future forest growth and carbon mitigation potential; 2. A map of changes in the susceptibility of forests to drought and selected biotic disturbance (pests/pathogens); 3. A map of LAI and biomass distribution in Finland; and 4. An Internet-based [...]
