The CORE project : Regulation of organic matter and nutrient turnover in the soil compartment of European forestsFunded under: FP2-STEP
The principal aim of the CORE project is to determine the response of biogeochemical processes in coniferous forest soils to changes in the amount and composition of atmospheric pollutants and climate. Traditionally, biogeochemical research has concentrated on single sites to understand and describe the development of soil processes under existing conditions. The concept behind the current study is to use the different physical and chemical climates across Europe to investigate the development and change of forest soil processes when exposed to changing conditions. Therefore different sites along a transect of increasing acid deposition from Ireland to Germany were chosen. Each of the six forest sites represents a specific pollution situation.
