Seminar/Excursion: Experimental micrometeorology: From design to interpretation of land surface exchange measurements, field course (28352)
2017-08-27-2017-09-08 (several days), location tba
Christoph Thomas, Wolfgang Babel, Lena Pfister, Johannes Olesch
Geoecology, M. Sc., Modul PM5
A preparatory meeting will be held on 10 May, 12:00 in S 137 (NW III)
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 will be held in 12 days between end of August and end of September 2017. Location and exact time slot will come up soon!
