Technical Note: The determination of enclosed water volume in large flexible-wall mesocosms "KOSMOS"

Czerny, J.; Schulz, K. G.; Krug, S. A.; Ludwig, A.; Riebesell, U.

The volume of water enclosed inside flexible-wall mesocosm bags is hard to estimate using geometrical calculations and can be strongly variable among bags of the same dimensions. Here we present a method for precise water volume determination in mesocosms using salinity as a tracer. Knowledge of the precise volume of water enclosed allows establishment of exactly planned treatment concentrations and calculation of elemental budgets.
