Award News

Lukas was awarded the Outstanding Student Poster Award 2011 by the EGU for his poster on “Acetone and acetaldehyde exchange above a managed temperate mountain grassland”.

Short-term Scientific Mission

Albin is presently on a short-term scientific mission with Prof. Gerrit Schoups at the TU Delft financed by the COST action ABBA. The objective of this week-long stay is to collaborate on the Bayesian calibration of our grassland carbon cycling model.

New Group Member

Felix Spielmann is joining the group as a Master student and will be conducting VOC leaf gas exchange measurements on mountain grassland plant species in collaboration with Prof. Jörg-Peter Schnitzler at the Helmholtz Zentrum München.

New Publications

The paper by Niu et al. on the thermal optimality of NEE was accepted by New Phytologist. Publications

Presentations All Around

3 New Posters @iLEAPS

We presented 3 posters at the 3rd iLEAPS Science Conference in Garmisch; Ines received an award (2nd place) for her poster on monoterpene deposition to a grassland, Georg presented a poster about the potential of COS as a tracer for photosynthesis, transpiration and stomatal conductance.

Georg also attended the post-conference workshop which discussed challenges and opportunities of integrated longterm LEAP observations.

1 Oral Presenation & 1 Awarded Poster

Lukas and Christoph attended the 12. Klimatag in Vienna; Lukas gave a presentation on “Breathing of the Atmosphere” and Christoph presented a poster on the GrassClim project which won a poster award for most innovative research project.
