Today we’ve received notice that our joint DFG-FWF (DACH) project with Mirco Migliavacca (MPI Jena) entitled “Constraining terrestrial gross primary productivity by joint measurements of the carbonyl sulfide exchange and sun-induced fluorescence” will be funded and will allow us to explore the exciting link between COS exchange and SIF during the next three years!
In addition to coverage in several newspapers, the ALCH4 project was recently featured by in a TV report by RAI (external link).
Within the frame of the project ALCH4 (funded by Province of South Tyrol/Alto Adige), Kathi, Enrico and our intern Benni are busy conducting lake-atmosphere methane flux measurements using our mobile platform (see picture on Kalterer See/Lago Caldaro; link to short video).
Within the project ALCH4, in collaboration with the Free University of Bolzano and the CNR Firenze and funded by the Province Südtirol/Alto Adige, we will be conducting mobile eddy covariance methane flux measurements from lakes in the Alpine region during the next two years. Today the basis for the mobile flux platform, the boat, arrived.
Kathi and Georg attended the ExCarb workshop at Lunz to discuss progress with joint publications as the project winds down. Below a few impressions from the flux station.
