The sampling site Bornhöveder Seengebiet is located on arable land in the catchment area of Lake Belau.
The predominant soils are
Kolluvisol-Braunerden (German soil classification KA 4) originating from ice-age sedimentation and run-off material. The soil sampling site of the Environmental Specimen Bank is situated in the direct neighbourhood of the permanent soil monitoring site
BDF24 of the Federal state of Schleswig-Holstein. That makes a data exchange possible between the two projects.
