Seminar/Excursion: Experimental micrometeorology: From design to interpretation of land surface exchange measurements, field course (28381)

SS 2016
2016-08-28-2016-09-09 (several days), Klöndeel, Fahrdorf-Loopstedt

Christoph Thomas, Wolfgang Babel, Lena Pfister, Johannes Olesch

Geoecology, M. Sc., Modul PM5

NEW: preparatory meeting: Wednesday, April 27, 12:00 in H6   !!!!!

A preparatory exercise: working with large data sets will be offered!

The focus of this course lies on measurement and analysis of energy and matter exchange between atmosphere and surface. All participants will conduct measurements by themselves, analyse the data, evaluate their quality, present the results and write a report. While working on these tasks, the participants will be individually supervised, fundamental basics will be taught or worked out in groups. In preparation to the field lab/computer lab days in Lindenberg the participants will choose a scientific question and the respective micrometeorological technique together with the supervisors. Individual wishes, based on given project work or simply on individual interest, are appreciated!

The following techniques will be used as a minimum:

  • Set-up and maintenance of energy and carbon dioxide exchange (eddy-covariance, radiation, soil heat flux)
  • analysis of eddy-covariance data including corrections, data quality and footprint
  • analysis of energy balance components and closure

The course will be held in English, and 5 ETCS were received.

The block course starts on 28 Aug in Klöndeel, Fahrdorf-Loopstedt (near Schleswig) and is finished on 9 Sept 2016. We will lodge in a conference house (self-sufficient) and will have a seminar room for individual or team work. More details about the measurement campaign and further activities will be given in the preparatory meeting.
