Learning Objectives (Module A6): The module aim is the advanced study about ecological matter and energy flows. Central starting point is the hydrological cycle in the air-water-soil-plant continuum.
Measuring methods for bio-geochemical flows in the atmosphere, plants and soil: Profile of state variables, techniques to measure fluxes including Eddy-covariance and gradient approaches, radiation, sap flow, gas exchange, soil chambers, and lysimeter.
Models of bio-geochemical flows: approaches like Penman Monteith, mesoscales and interface modules, SVAT models, plant models, soil models, statistic approaches, surface averaging, remote sensing, top-down and bottom-up approaches.
Field campaigns with measurements in a forest eco-system, data analysis, modules of experimental data and modelling.
