New project funded

We have received notice that Albin’s project on merging COS flux measurements and sun-induced fluorescence to constrain gross primary productivity will be funded through a young investigator grant by the University of Innsbruck – congratulations!

Lunzer See update

Early this week, Kathi and Albin were at Lunzer See to dismantle the eddy covariance equipment from the floating platform, which will be hauled from the lake for the winter period. This year, for the first time, we will be making eddy flux measurements during wintertime from both the East (first picture) and West (second picture) shore using two flux towers, thereby hoping to increase the fraction of data originating from the lake.

Within four days two of our MSc students have successfully defended – congratulations to Katharina and Karl!

Advection campaign at Neustift started

Last Thursday, Kathi^2, Peng and Georg were at Neustift to set up the advection equipment for the final campaign this year. Here you can find a video which compresses a few hours of work into 25 s.
