During the next 4 weeks Karolina will be on secondment with Christiaan Van der Tol at the University of Twente to work with the SCOPE model and in particular to apply it to the many field campaigns from this and last year during which she has collected extensive proximal sensing (hyperspectral reflectance, active/passive chlorophyll fluorescence) and eddy flux (CO2, H2O and COS) data.
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.
