AGU Fall Meeting 2012 Roundup

We had one oral and three poster presentations at this year’s AGU Fall Meeting in San Francisco, CA.


More than just CO2: The carbon balance of a temperate mountain grassland (Invited) PDF


  • Carbon storage potential of managed mountain grasslands under future conditions – Inverse modelling and uncertainty analysis PDF
  • Tradeoffs between warming and day length on the carbon uptake period of temperate mountain grasslands PDF
  • Interannual and seasonal variability of CH4 and N2O exchange over a temperate mountain grassland PDF

EGU 2012 Roundup

There is a lot to write news about, so let’s start at the beginning:

The Presentations:

  • Deposition of terpenes to vegetation – a paradigm shift towards bidirectional VOC exchange?
  • Off-season carbon dioxide exchange of a temperate mountain grassland

The Posters:

TV News:

Stefanie Hörbst and Felix Spielmann did measurements as part of a course at the University of Innsbruck comparing air temperatures in urban and rural environments. They had the opportunity to explain their work to a wider audience during their appearance in the Tirol Heute weather forecast. Here are some pics, and there’s even a video.

New Funding

We received notice that our project „Effects of soil drying on transpiration of Austrian tree species“, in collaboration with Dr. Stefan Mayr (Institute of Botany), Dr. Gerhard Wieser (BFW) and DI Dr. Dieter Stöhr (Land Tirol, Forestry Department), will be funded 2011-2012 within the frame of the StartClim 2011 programme.

New Presentations

Christoph attended the Sparkling Science workshop 2011 in Vienna and presented our project GrassClim.

Georg attended the PhenoAlp final workshop in Torgnon/Italy and gave an invited presentation on “Carbon, water and energy fluxes in Alpine ecosystems”.

And Lukas attended a MUSCATEN – Abba workshop on BVOC emissions in Estonia and gave an invited presentation on “BVOC fluxes over a temperate mountain grassland”.

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.
