proeftuin Fieldlabs

Created at: 22 Nov 2014

Description

The swale is part of the historical World Heritage Site: Bryggen in Bergen, on the west coast of Norway. The average annual rainfall in Bergen is 2,250 mm/y and annual mean temperature of 7.6 °C, varying from 1.3 to 14.3 °C. Dry swales in this area are predominately used increase the groundwater level and humidity in the top soil cost-effectively to avoid oxygenation and loss of highly organic cultural deposits in the subsurface. The study swales consist of two grassed areas positioned side by side. Each swale is approximately 20 m long, 6 m wide and has an average slope of 1:2. The swales are primary installed to capture and treat stormwater runoff from upstream roofs and roadway
