Experimental site for studying the impact of global changes on the relationships between agricultural production and water resources at different scales (2007-today)

The Crau-Camargue area was chosen as an experimental site to study the impact of global change on the relationships between the agricultural production and water ressources at different scales. based on relationships with local partners, different fields were set up to monitor crop growth, agriculural practices, surface-air exchanges and hydrochemical functioning of the aquifer. The studied crops are: irrigated grasslands, rice, wheat, coussoul and sansouire.

Available measurements

puce_verte Institutional information and inquiries on agricultural practices

puce_verte Vegetation characteristics (- LAI - leaf area index, canopy height, biomass)

puce_verte Micrometeorological measurement network

puce_verte Remote sensing image database

puce_verte Groundwater monitoring measurements (piezometers, salinity, hyrdochemical analysis, water isotopes)

Measurement period: 2007 - today
