Abstract

On the basis of model results, the hydrological behaviour of the forest system is discussed, with special attention to transpiration and to the vertical and temporal dynamics of soil water contents, root water uptake and soil water fluxes. As water uptake by oaks and beeches is restricted to the unsaturated soil zone, high groundwater tables in the rather poorly drained duplex soil appear to have a large impact on the soil water dynamics. Suggestions are made on the implications of the hydrology for soil acidification. This discussion shows that a thorough knowledge of the hydrological behaviour of the system can greatly contribute to the understanding of biogeochemical processes and soil acidification. -from Authors
