AmeriFlux Data and Tech Workshop
Niwot Ridge Mountain Research Station CO
Wednesday September 21, 8am through 5pm

This year’s workshop takes place immediately before, and close to, the AmeriFlux Annual PI Meeting.  The Mountain Research Station is about an hour’s drive from Golden CO. Registration is coordinated with the AmeriFlux Annual PI Meeting.

To suggest a topic for the workshop, contact the organizers Sébastien Biraud (Tech) and Deb Agarwal (Data). Your suggestions are always very welcome!

  • No registration fee for the AmeriFlux Data and Tech Workshop! But please register by September 15 (extended), so we can plan (e.g., who needs pizza September 20, and breakfast and lunch on September 21).
  • Lodging: Stay for the night of September 20 at Moores-Collins Family Lodge at the Mountain Research Station. No charge! There’s lots of room. Four beds (bunks) to a room; bring your sleeping bag or bedding. Email Susan Sprinkle if you plan to stay at the Lodge.
  • Or if you prefer, book a motel room in nearby Nederland CO.
  • Transport: Due to the location, please rent a vehicle (feel free to carpool with others).  Shuttles are not practical.  Also, it’s wildfire season; best to have plenty of vehicles in case of need for an orderly evacuation.
  • A 5pm departure will provide plenty of time for you to arrive for the AmeriFlux Annual PI Meeting dinner at 7pm in Golden.
