Today Kathi and Georg made the long drive to Lunz am See to set up an eddy covariance flux tower within the CarbEx project. Since the platform has been removed during winter, the flux tower as set up at the shore of the lake close to the Water Cluster Lunz in the meantime, before it will be moved to the platform in spring. The aim of the project is to link hydrological extremes to the carbon cycle of Lunzer See and the eddy flux measurements yield the lake-atmosphere CO2 flux.
The methane/nitrous oxide flux paper has been finally published in BG: Hörtnagl L., Wohlfahrt G. (2014) Methane and nitrous oxide exchange over a managed hay meadow. Biogeosciences 11, 7219-7236. link
