The central project D03 maintains and further develops the unique Critical Zone research infrastructure at the Hainich Critical Zone Exploratory and the Saale-Elster-Sandsteinplatte Observatory, coordinates the field activities, is prominently involved in the collection of fundamental data on the geological setting, and runs the meteorological, hydrogeochemical, and hydraulic monitoring. With a dedicated scientific approach, D03 will advance and generalize our current understanding of links and feedbacks between the surface and the diverse subsurface habitats and their roles for ecosystem functions, by synthesizing, e.g., the multi-omics data from the contrasting model sites.
