IMPRS workshop 'Eddy Covariance'

  • Start: Oct 10, 2022
  • End: Oct 14, 2022
IMPRS workshop 'Eddy Covariance'

1.  General information

Date: October 10-14, 2022
Location: Lecture Hall, MPI for Biogeochemistry, Jena
Teacher: Mathias Goeckede, Olaf Kolle, Tarek El-Madany, Mark Schlutow

This workshop will cover 5 days, split up into Basics at the beginning, followed by the Post-processing and excursion. The course itself will consist of lectures, hands-on classes with software tools, instrument sessions the laboratory, and an excursion to the MPI-BGC field site in Gebesee.

Participants will be informed about the dates in June.
