Early in July, Karolina and Herbert set up active chlorophyll fluorescence measurements at the flux tower Leinefelde run by Alexander Knohl (Univ. Göttingen) complementing the ongoing passive chlorophyll fluorescence measurements with a FLOX system operated by MPI Jena (Mirco Migliavacca).
At present the power line to our upcoming forest flux tower near Obermieming is being established – see pics courtesy of Markus Wörz.
Today Karolina and others mounted the WhiteRef loaned from FEM (foreground) and our SIF system (background) to start jointly measuring hyperspectral reflectance and passive (sun-induced) fluorescence at Neustift within the frame of her Marie Sklodowska-Curie project COSIF. These measurements will be accompanied within COS/CO2 eddy covariance flux measurements and active chlorophyll fluorescence by means of a moniPAM.
The last three days, Katherina, Hannah, who is doing an internship with us this summer (on second picture), and Georg went to Ariis to conduct a final round of soil COS measurements, dismantle the equipment and bring it back to Innsbruck.
