Reference database GRIP

B-WARE Research Center has its own extensive reference database that can be used to support data interpretation. Local reference measurements can also be an interesting addition to the research.  By looking at soil characteristics, including the degree of buffering (pH, calcium) and phosphorus, iron, nitrate, ammonium, potassium, aluminum and sulfur concentrations, we can give advice on which types of nature could be developed and which target concentrations should be used. These targets vary per nature type. It also shows whether a one-time liming with Dolokal or stone meal is necessary. Such advice is tailor-made.

We can also identify the risks of P mobilization by means of analyses of phosphate saturation levels and experiments. Here we look especially at P concentrations and the Fe/P ratio in the pore water. This may be of interest when (substantial) rewetting measures are implemented in hydrological buffer zones.

Studies into the chemical composition of soil and water provide an important basis for the final design plan to be drawn up. The abiotic conditions guide the final development.
