Teaching stomatal conductance

Within the TeefürPUK project we have today hosted a class from the Reithmanngymnasium in order to introduce the pupils into leaf gas exchange. Georg discussed with the pupils the basics of leaf CO2 and water vapour exchange and in particular strategies of plants involved in the regulation of stomatal conductance. Then pupils could get a hands-on experience with the Decagon porometers measuring stomatal conductance on a reference group of plants, drought-stressed plants and plants kept in the dark (simulating nighttime). Finally, results obtained by the pupils were discussed and related to the importance of stomatal conductance in regulating the water cycle and near-surface climate and the implications of changing environmental conditions.

Peter Widmoser (University of Kiel) visited us in June to work on diagnosing how to best force closure of the energy imbalance. The picture shows him during a field course on Kaserstattalm helping students with phytomass sampling.

Visitor Ray Leuning

After this years EGU meeting in Vienna, Ray Leuning (CSIRO, Canberra, Australia) spent a couple of days at our lab – not only to give a presentation and discuss science, but also to try our favorite spring skiing activity “figeln”. And because it’s 2012 and therefore the future, here’s a video:

Visitor Almuth Arneth

Almut Arneth (Lunds University) visited us and gave a presentation on “Discerning the trees from the forest: BVOC and fire emissions”.

Marta Galvagno visited us

Visit & Presentation

Marta Galvagno from ARPA Valle d’Aosta was visting us and gave a seminar talk on “Monitoring and modeling CO2 exchange of a mountain grassland in the Italian Alps”. On 24 May we visited our study sites in Stubai Valley and discussed potential future collaborations.
