The next stage of the research in the Czerwone bog woodland reserve has been completed.

The Nature and Human Foundation, project's partner responsible i.a. for comprehensive environmental monitoring of abiotic and biotic parameters of the peat bog, has performed electrical resistance measurements on the surface of the bog's dome during low autumn water levels.

The electrical resistance method is commonly used to determine soil and water conditions, recognize the geological structure, locate the groundwater table or to do archaeological research.

The measurements were carried out by Marek Kasprzak, PhD, DSc, from the Department of Geomorphology at the University of Wrocław. The results will be used e.g. to create a hydrogeological model of the reserve area.

Working together for a green Europe
„Carpathians Unite Conservation of Orawsko-Nowotarskie Peatlands” benefits from a 849 910 EUR grant from Iceland, Liechtenstein and Norway through the EEA Grants. The aim of the project is to protect valuable natural habitats: a raised bog and marshy forest communities in its vicinity, located in the Czerwone bog woodland nature reserve (one of the Polish Ramsar sites), as well as other wetland ecosystems in the Orawsko-Nowotarskie Peatlands complex. Co-financing from the state budget amounts to 149 984 EUR.
