Project funded

Today we have received notice that our project “Carbonyl sulfide exchange between terrestrial ecosystems and the atmosphere: magnitude, controls and relationship to canopy photosynthesis and transpiration” will be funded for the next three years by the Austrian Science Fund (FWF).

Field campaign

In the context of RadarSat overpasses Katharina and Georg went to the pasture EC site in Vinschgau to do some EcoBot measurements for the HighResAlp project. The EcoBot was recently upgraded with a GPS and Decagon NDVI and PRI sensors (see picture). We collected at total of 240 measurements within the footprint of the eddy covariance tower.

At the same time the Applied Remote Sensing group from EURAC flew a hyperspectral camera with their new toy, the drone (see picture). The collected data will be used to explore the effects of within-footprint heterogeneity on fluxes measured by eddy covariance.

FWF project funded

Today we received notice that Albin’s project proposal to the FWF, entitled “Land-atmosphere carbon monoxide exchange”, will be funded – CONGRATULATIONS!

New project funded

Today we have received notice that our grant proposal on “On the role of advection for the net carbon dioxide exchange of short-statured ecosystems in complex terrain” to the FWF will be funded – yippee!
