This Monday, Alessandro and Gemini (University of Udine) visited us to discuss the results of this year’s measurement campaign at Ariis, where a wildtype and chlorophyll-deficient soybean mutant were compared in a large-scale field experiment, to which we participated measuring COS and CO2 fluxes, as well as sun-induced fluorescence.
In the afternoon, Alessandro gave a well-received presentation in the Institute’s seminar series, blending their previous and current research results on soybean.
Yesterday, Marta and colleagues from ARPA dismantled the advection equipment that was in place since July at the grassland of Torgnon (this time without a helicopter but a lot of motivated man-power). The equipment will remain in Aosta until next summer, when it is planned to be deployed at the Larch flux tower.

Starting with 1st October Georg will join the team of associate editors at Agricultural and Forest Meteorology. Along with this change he’ll be phasing out of Biogeosciences, where he served as an associate editor since 2008.
