Examination: Date will be announced


The water and carbon cycles are presented, for different ecosystem types, starting from the atmosphere on global scale and including anthopogenic influences. A special focus will be measurement and modeling of the atmosphere - vegetation exchange above high vegetation, which requires volume-based descriptions rather than of point-based descriptions as taught in FM1. Measurement and modeling techniques were described for both short process studies and long-term monitoring infrastructure (Fluxnet). Specific processes were highlighted like coherent structures and sub-mesoscale motions as well as stable isotopes as a method to characterize concentration profiles and fluxes
