FLUXNET Conference

Dear FLUXNET,

The 6th annual flux course will take place the University of Colorado Mountain Research Station from the 15th through the 26th of July this summer. The fluxcourse (http://www.fluxcourse.org/) seeks to cross train attendees in measurement techniques and advanced modeling approaches for quantifying carbon and water fluxes between the atmosphere and the biosphere. The course will be offered to 24 graduate students, post-docs and early career scientists.

Topics will include: flux measurements at the leaf level; modeling leaf CO2 and H2O fluxes; eddy covariance measurements; use of stable isotopes to infer ecosystem-atmosphere fluxes; predictions of fluxes from satellite observations; canopy flux models; assimilation of flux observations and satellite remote sensing data into ecosystem process models; and Bayesian approaches to modeling.  Continua a leggere “FLUXNET Conference”
