Seminar/Excursion: Experimental micrometeorology: From design to interpretation of land surface exchange measurements, field course (28352)
March 2020 near Schleswig, Germany
Christoph Thomas, Wolfgang Babel, Johannes Olesch
Geoecology, M. Sc., Modul PM5
The course will NOT take place in the summer term 2019. Exact time and more information will be given during the winter term 2019/20
A preparatory exercise: Working on large data sets with R will be offered in the second half of the term, starting on Mo, 13 May. It is highly recommended to join this exercise when considering participation of the field class!
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 will be held in 12 days, and is expected to take place in March, 2020 near Schleswig, Germany.
