We welcome Peng Zhao in our group. Peng obtained his PhD degree just recently from the University of Bayreuth and will be working on the FWF Advection project.
The Austrian GCOS (Global Climate Observing System) report, with contributions from the Biomet group (p. 62-63), was recently published online by ZAMG. The aim of GCOS is to build a long-term climate monitoring system for detecting and attributing climate change and assessing impacts of climate change and supporting adaption to climate change and climate variability.
With the beginning of January, Lukas will be based at the Grassland Sciences Group at ETH Zürich. Although we will miss him, we wish him all the best for his new position!
Marta (Galvagno), our dear collaborator on grassland eddy covariance flux measurements in complex terrain, just let us know that she gave birth to a girl on 2 October – congratulations!
Following a press release prepared by Gabriele Rampl (Scinews), reports on our research on mountain grasslands and in particular about our recent paper on the effects of changes in snow melt on mountain grassland carbon dioxide source/sink strength have appeared in several newspapers (WienerZeitung, Standardonline) and media (ipoint of the University of Innsbruck, ORFonScience, Innovationsreport, APAScience).
