Friday, September 9

Time (Eastern) Meeting Agenda
9:00 AM Field trip to Flux tower site – choice of walking or driving

If walking, it’s about 3 km one-way, roughly 45 minutes, to US-UMB, which is our control tower in an unmanipulated forest that has been operating since 1997. On the way, we could stop and briefly discuss US-UMd, where we’ve stem girdled 10,000 trees — we’ll walk right through it. Terrain is mostly flat and sandy.

If driving, a 930 departure will get everyone to US-UMB in 5-10 minutes. Walk to the tower is minimal from the road (~200m).

Packout lunch will be provided at breakfast.

12:00 PM Departure


Breakout Sessions:

  • FLUXNET: Current initiatives and future priorities (Breakout Session 1)
  • Year of Remote Sensing: advancing science from the synergy between eddy flux and remote sensing (Breakout Session 1)
  • MexFlux: How can we move forward? (Breakout Session 2)
  • Nature-based climate solutions: The research needed to be robust, scalable, and credible (Breakout Session 2)
  • Methane: Open science and research infrastructure to enhance our understanding of shifting sinks and sources of atmospheric methane (Breakout Session 2)
  • Inclusive growth of methane data and community across the Americas (Cancelled)
  • Harnessing machine learning for eddy-covariance research (Breakout Session 3)
  • Data Integration for Societal Benefits (Breakout Session 4)
  • 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13, 21, 34, 55… How Many Authors? (Breakout Session 4)
  • Informing models with AmeriFlux observations: needs and opportunities from the AmeriFlux-RUBISCO working group (Cancelled)
