Early in July, Karolina and Herbert set up active chlorophyll fluorescence measurements at the flux tower Leinefelde run by Alexander Knohl (Univ. Göttingen) complementing the ongoing passive chlorophyll fluorescence measurements with a FLOX system operated by MPI Jena (Mirco Migliavacca).
Yesterday Kathi and Georg travelled to Mondsee to get the CH4 and CO2 flux measurements operational after repair of some of the equipment and gave a joint lecture in the seminar of the Department of Limnology on “Quantifying the lake-atmosphere CO2 and CH4 exchange using the eddy covariance method”.
Kathi is attending the ASLO 2019 Aquatic Sciences in meeting in San Juan (Puerto Rico) these days presenting latest findings on our mobile methane flux measurements with in the ALCH4 project.
Today and tomorrow, Kathi, Enrico and Georg are meeting with folks from CNR Ibimet (Benjamin, Federico and Franco) to discuss the status of the CH4/CO2 eddy flux data collected during this summer with the mobile platform on a number of lakes in Trentino, Alto Adige and Nordtirol and to finalize the post-processing routines. The meeting takes place at the Osservatorio Ximeniano with a breath-taking view on the Basilica di San Lorenzo.
