Mountains under Watch 2013 conference

We have been attending the Mountains under Watch 2013 conference in Bard (Valle d’Aosta, Italy) 20-22 February 2013. Georg gave a keynote lecture on “Effects of global changes on mountain ecosystems” (watch video (external link) recorded by Greg Greenwood from MRI) and Albin a talk on “As simple as possible, but not simpler than that: An efficient soil water content model for broad ecological applications”.

Advection Visualized

Georg spent a week in Aosta Valley, Italy, studying CO2 advection at the subalpine grassland site Torgnon together with Marta Galvagno and colleagues from ARPA Valle d’Aosta. The pictures show the study site in the fading light of day and the prominent peak of Matterhorn (Cervino) across the border to Switzerland. The video shows an attempt to visualise nighttime downslope flows using a fog machine (usually used for parties ….).
