3 Inside of an Abandoned Lysimetric Station

Inside of an Abandoned Lysimetric Station

Posted on December 15, 2011 by


We’re at another abandoned lysimetric laboratory.

A lysimeter is a device which measures the amount of actual evapotranspiration released by plants, usually crops or trees. By recording the amount of precipitation that an area receives and the amount lost through the soil, the amount of water lost to evapotranspiration can be calculated.

These are lysimeters.

A passage.

And one of the galleries adjacent to it.

Each lysimeter is conneted with this device…

And this is how it works.

Since the facility is abandoned, water overfilled these tanks and flew out on the floor.

A clamp.

Another device for another testing.

‘Modular block’.

The floor is relatively dry because it’s winter. In summertime, however, it’s going to be a flood here!

‘Modular block’.

All kinds of flasks.

What is this cage doing here?

    The cage? To put snooping CIA spies in while the Soviets conduct their progressive science.

  2. Emperor Norton says:

    A bit shocking the shear scale this study was done under and they would just abandon it. And the Texans say they like to do things big,..,

    Isn’t this a rerun?
