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”.

New Papers Published

New papers have been published and are now available online:


Over 2 growing seasons, we investigated

“Biotic, abiotic, and management controls on methanol exchange above a temperate mountain grassland”


Following a hailstorm, we observed

“Deposition fluxes of terpenes over grassland”
