Last Friday Karolina was invited to present her research on chlorophyll-deficient mutants as a means to increase the planetary albedo and thus counteract global warming caused by greenhouse gas emissions at the finals of the Euregio young researcher competition and achieved the 3rd place – congratulations!

This week we hosted a mini-workshop funded by the COST action OPTIMISE to develop a web-based tool that merges flux footprint modeling using the approach by Kljun et al. (2015) with an unsupervised land cover classification using Sentinel-2 and Bing data to devise optimal sensor placement for linking flux measurements with proximal sensing.

Today another Biomet student graduated – Tamara successfully defended her thesis on soil COS exchange at Neustift – congratulations!
The last two days part of the group was in Fendt (Bavaria) to set up the advection measurement system as part of the 2016 ScaleX campaign.
Tuesday/Wednesday Felix and Albin travelled by car to Las Majadas (Spain) for a COS flux measurement campaign. Below some impressions of their travel.
