  • physical parameters (f.e.determination of grain-size, water content, oven-dry density, magnetic susceptibility etc.)
  • chemical parameters (f.e.pH-value, electric conductivity of soil solutions, phosphate concentration etc.)
  • determination of the mineralogic composition
  • determination and quantification of the element concentration (f.e.  carbon contents (TC, TIC, TOC), nitrogen (TN), sulphurl (TS), heavy metal concentrations (Zn, Pb, Cd, ...), alkaline metals and  alkaline earth metals)
