Last Friday Karolina was invited to present her research on chlorophyll-deficient mutants as a means to increase the planetary albedo and thus counteract global warming caused by greenhouse gas emissions at the finals of the Euregio young researcher competition and achieved the 3rd place – congratulations!

Here a few (external) links to sites that recently covered our lake-atmosphere methane flux measurements presently conducted within the ALCH4 project in collaboration between the University of Innsbruck, the Free University of Bozen/Bolzano and CNR Ibimet.
At present the power line to our upcoming forest flux tower near Obermieming is being established – see pics courtesy of Markus Wörz.
Within the frame of the project ALCH4 (funded by Province of South Tyrol/Alto Adige), Kathi, Enrico and our intern Benni are busy conducting lake-atmosphere methane flux measurements using our mobile platform (see picture on Kalterer See/Lago Caldaro; link to short video).
