New collaborative project funded by Research Südtirol/Alto Adige

IMG_1537Today Albin and Georg attended the presentation of the successful projects of the 2019 Research Südtirol/Alto Adige call in Bozen/Bolzano (http://www.provinz.bz.it/news/de/news.asp?news_action=4&news_article_id=643217). Proud and grateful to be amongst the 20 funded projects and looking forward to collaborate with UniBz (Massimo Tagliavini et al.) and Laimburg (Barbara Raifer and Florian Haas) in this project!

PostDoc position available

We are looking for a PostDoc to work on a project combining active and passive chlorophyll fluorescence and VIS/NIR reflectance measurements with process-based simulation modeling in order to study early stress detection in terrestrial ecosystems – see here for more details. 

MSc thesis topic available

Within the frame of the project AgroClimHuaraz, we are offering a MSc thesis topic investigating phenological changes in the seasonal development of agricultural crops along a precipitation gradient in the area of Huaraz in the Peruvian Andes. The candidate is expected to use Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectrometer (MODIS) satellite timeseries of the normalized difference vegetation index (NDVI) to diagnose changes in the phenological development and to relate these to changes in the amount and timing of precipitation during the wet season as derived from reanalysis products. See here for further details.

Peru update

Llupa

The vegetation period is progressing at our study sites around Huaraz, as can be seen in the picture showing potatoe plants emerging at the EC flux tower site in Llupa.

Chincay

Meanwhile the new AWS has been set up in the Cordillera negra close to the village of Chincay.
