Worm Column Experiment

Minutes From the Meeting: UFZ-Halle, 15.06.2012

Attendees present:

Marc-Oliver Göbel, Joanna Hanzel, Marcus Horn, Anja Miltner, Yamuna Kunhi Mouvenchery, Thomas Ritschel, Gabriele Schaumann, Cordula Vogel, Hans-Jörg Vogel

1. Computed microtomography (µ-CT)

2. Collecting undistrubed cores and slices

Figure 3. Collecting undisturbed core (a and b) and slicing the core (c and d)

Test column (Fig.1) was manipulated to learn the handling of the column and mimic the main sampling procedure.

Prior to sampling, computed tomography was performed at the upper, middle and lower part of the column (Fig. 2).

Undistrubed core was taken from the test column (Fig.3 a,b).

The core was later sliced to obtain undisturbed thin sections (Fig. 3 c,d).

General Aim is to…

3. Collecting samples

…study the effect of endogeic earthworm A. caliginosa on:

• Stable aggregates and pore size

distribution

• Surface properties

• Transport and preferential flow paths

• Contact angle and wettability

• Surface chemistry

• Hydration and biofilm formation

• Spatial distribution of MCPA-

metabolites

• CO2 and N2O-fluxes

• Composition of microaggregates with

respect to MCPA degradation surface

properties

•Active microbial transformers of MCPA

and distribution

• Dead organic matter

• Distribution of oxygen

• Redox potential

  • b)

  • c)

Figure 4. Collecting samples from: a) cast, b) burrow wall, c) bulk soil

Samples of interest include: cast (Fig. 4a), burrow wall (Fig. 4b) and bulk soil (Fig. 4c).

Soil used for Worm Column Experiment: Luvisol, Scheyern, SCHLAG A15, S1
