Reportage Photo

In Barbeau forest

It is in the heart of the Barbeau forest, in Seine-et-Marne, that a team of scientists from the ESE laboratory installed several years ago a 35 m high pylon, equipped with sensors that measure the exchanges of matter (CO2, H2O) and energy between the forest ecosystem and the atmosphere. These sensors also make it possible to observe the state of health of the forest in a context of climate change.
