Preparations for drought experiment

Anna and Felix are presently at the Helmholtz Zentrum Neuherberg/Munich preparing our Aerodyne quantum cascade laser for measuring drought effects in Scots Pine seedlings on their COS exchange. These activities are part of a larger experiment in collaboration with Jogi Schnitzler and his team and Thomas Karl with collaborators within the frame of the FWF doc_funds project The future of mountain forests: response to a drier climate.

The picture below shows our laser being lifted into the experimental facility … fortunately no mishaps 😉

New paper

New projects

We’re delighted to announce that we have received notice that two of our submitted projects will receive funding. The first one goes to Lorenz Hänchen, who received funding for the project “EARLY – Early drought stress detection in Alpine Grassland Ecosystems” by the Forschungszentrum Berglandwirtschaft of the University of Innsbruck. The second one goes to Martin Rutzinger (Department of Geography), Magnus Bremer (LaserData) and Georg for the project “BeatTheBeetle – Early detection of spruce bark beetle in Austria using remote sensing”, funded by the Austrian Research Promotion Agency (FFG).

Welcome to our new interns

Klea and Chloe will spend the next months with us doing internships on soil respiration and sap flux at the FAIR site. In the picture below they enjoy the snow brought by the recent coldspell at the FAIR site.
