If you arrive early (say, noon), and the weather is good, you can join the beautiful but strenuous hike to the alpine treeline (elevation ~11,000 feet). For Tuesday evening, plan on a pizza dinner and s’mores!

For lodging, you can stay overnight at Moores-Collins Family Lodge (four to a room; bring sleeping bag). Or if you prefer, book a motel room in nearby Nederland CO.

The next morning starts with an early field trip to US-NR1 tower. There will be a short tower safety demo. After lunch the workshop will move to a lodge. These are the proposed topics:

  • A walk-through of a Tech Team site visit (what we do, and site staff would like, what we will add)
  • Site power and connectivity best practices
  • Processing of high-frequency data for the Tech Team visit
  • Submission of high-frequency data to AmeriFlux
  • QA/QC checks during the Tech Team visit
  • Processing of high-frequency data to products
  • Submission of data processing related BADMs
  • AmeriFlux’s loaner program (sonic, IRGAS, Radiation sensors) and profiling system

A 5pm departure will provide plenty of time for you to arrive for the AmeriFlux Annual PI Meeting dinner at 7pm.
