The municipal landfill in Rastorf (Schleswig-Holstein) is covered with a temporary till based capping system. Investigations of structural changes (water conductivity, pore function, shrinkage behaviour) were carried out with undisturbed soil cores and two- and three-dimensional measurement techniques. The usage of different techniques to evaluate the soil volume changes resulted in variations of the available water capacity (ver>ver+hor>3D) and the unsaturated hydraulic conductivity. In summary, a critical matric potential between -500 and -1000 hPa in conjunction with a low shrinkage tendency (Vs < 5 %) could be seen as main argument for the utilization of till as sealing substrate.
