The Marcell Experimental Forest has been the subject of hundreds of studies since its establishment in 1962. Most of these studies have been hydrological in nature, but opportunities are great for many other types of research.
The depth, variety, and length of water, soil, atmosphere, and vegetation databases at the Marcell Experimental Forest give graduate students and collaborative scientists a unique opportunity to study watershed and landscape aspects of northern Lake States upland and peatland ecosystems. Additionally, the experimental forest installs and monitors a variety of demonstration plots.
We welcome any interest in using the facilities and the experimental watersheds for research. To inquire further please contact:
