This Tech blog post describes two approaches that can help you collect high-quality data and minimize data gaps: automated data visualization for post-visit data QA/QC, and taking advantage of digital notes for field work and data processing.
The annual meeting is almost here, it will be Oct 6-8! You can still register here, free of charge, until Oct 1. This year, we will host the annual meeting of the AmeriFlux community online. To take advantage of this opportunity, our theme is Bridging the Americas and there are no registration or abstract submission… More
AmeriFlux means a diversity of ecosystems, but also of people and personal narratives. Today, on the second Thursday in July, our Mexican members observe Día del Árbol (Arbor Day). What a great opportunity to meet a few of the talented, innovative women who work at AmeriFlux sites across the Americas! AmeriFlux owes its success to… More
The AmeriFlux network – with its ever growing availability of surface flux measurements – has contributed to important advancements in our understanding of biosphere-atmosphere interactions. Most studies have investigated ecosystem responses to meteorological or environmental drivers and have only rarely included feedbacks between land surface processes, atmospheric boundary layer dynamics, and the free troposphere. Currently,… More
We are excited to announce two new monthly webinar series created for members of the AmeriFlux and FLUXNET communities: The AmeriFlux Management Project Webinar Series, and the FLUXNET Early Career Webinar Series. The FLUXNET Early Career Network series focuses on the science being realized with eddy-covariance observations around the world. It kicks off this Friday,… More
The following is a description of the workflow that we use at the ChEAS (Chequamegon Ecosystem-Atmosphere Study) core-site cluster based at the University of Wisconsin to create real-time plots of our data. It allows us to look for inconsistencies and changes in data over time.
Due to COVID-19, the entire AmeriFlux Management Project (AMP) has been working from home since March 16 following shelter-in-place orders from public health authorities in the San Francisco Bay Area. Read about how we are adapting.
To capture the spring release of greenhouse gasses from bog lakes, a team of intrepid UW-Madison researchers installed eddy covariance buoys on two frozen bog lakes in northern Wisconsin in March. These buoys provided under the loaner instrument program (LI-7700) by the AmeriFlux Management Project for the AmeriFlux Year of Methane are continually measuring carbon dioxide and methane fluxes and will continue doing so as ice melts and as the buoys settle into their summer home on the open water.
Sessions Proposals DEADLINE EXTENDED until APRIL 23, 2020 ! We are now accepting proposals for Fall Meeting 2020, including Innovative Sessions, a new format inspired by programming at 2019’s Centennial Central. Due to COVID-19, AGU has extended the deadline until Thursday, 23 April 2020. If you have any questions, please contact AGU’s Scientific Program Team…. More
