Seminar/Excursion: Experimental Micrometeorology (PM5.1) (28381)

SS 2015
2015-09-21-2015-10-02 (several days), Lindenberg, Bad Saarow

Christoph Thomas, Wolfgang Babel, Johannes Olesch

Geoecology, M. Sc., Modul PM5

The preparatory meeting will be on Wednesday, 6 May 2015, 12:00 in H6 !

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 21 Sept in Bad Saarow-Pieskow and is finished on 2 Oct 2015. The youth hostel of Bad Saarow offers us accomodation in shared rooms, full board and a seminar room exclusively reserved for our purpose. Measurement site will be the boundary layer field site of the German Weather Service in Falkenberg. Further events will be e.g. visiting the Richard-Aßmann-observatory and the weather museum in Lindenberg.
