Monitoring Green Infrastructure: Design and commissioning of pilot scale bioretention cell lysimeters



This resource documents the commissioning of the EPSRC-funded Urban Green DaMS (Design and Modelling of SuDS) lysimeters, based at the UKRCIC National Green Infrastructure Facility. The following resources are available within this DOI record:

1) Lysimeter filling - Phase 1 (drainage components)

2) Lysimeter filling - Phase 2 (SuDS substrate and sensors)

3) Vegetation scenarios (planting styles)

4) Full lysimeter commissioning and technical specifications

Further information:

This work forms part of the wider Urban Green DaMS (Design and Modelling of SuDS) research programme currently underway at the University of Sheffield (EPSRC EP/S005536/1) and Newcastle University (EPSRC EP/S005862/1).
