Complex monitoring of land and water environments

The project is carried out in collaboration with the St. Petersburg State University since 1996.

On the basis of long-term investigations, certain reference stations in the water system of the Valaam Archipelago and certain reference areas on the Archipelago's islands were chosen. At these stations and in these areas the monitoring is conducted of the state of the communities, of the chemical composition of water or soil and of the microclimatic parameters.

Data on the variability of several parameters in various microlandscapes of the Archipelago have been collected. The most interesting results were obtained from the studies of various soil types and of polytypic spruce forests at various succession stages.
