Lecture/Exercise course: Transport Systems: Links and Fluxes of Energy and Matter between Atmosphere, Pedospere and Biosphere (GCE:A6) (70550)
Tu.: 14:00-16:00, Online (live); Th.: 14:00-16:00, Online (live)
Wolfgang Babel, Mohsen Zare, Anke Nölscher, Dennis Ochuodho Otieno
Starting date: 14.04.2021
Field days: planned for 23 June and 30 June
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, 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 or agricultural eco-system, data analysis, modules of experimental data and model approaches.
