This summer a few of our staff Scientists had the opportunity to participate in the Niwot Ridge 5th Annual Flux Course, held in Colorado at the Mountain Research Station (MRS), located approximately 35 km west of Boulder. The course is offered annually to 24 graduate students, post-docs/early career scientists and covers flux measurements at the leaf level; modeling leaf CO₂ and H₂O fluxes; eddy covariance measurements; use of stable isotopes to infer ecosystem-atmosphere fluxes; predictions of fluxes from satellite observations; canopy flux models; assimilation of flux observations and satellite remote sensing data into ecosystem process models; and Bayesian approaches to modeling. LI-COR’s Scientists instructed classes on leaf level flux and eddy covariance measurements. Here is a video summary of the course.
