We are excited to announce our keynote speakers:

Registration: Here, register by Oct 1!

Registration is now open! There are no registration or abstract submission costs.

Where: online!

This year, we will host the conference online, with lots of opportunities for interaction. To take advantage of this unique opportunity, our theme is Bridging the Americas and there are no registration or abstract submission costs. This is an effort to build relationships and collaboration while serving our early career community and others who are disadvantaged by COVID-19.

Hosting this year’s meeting are Dr. Sara Knox from University of British Columbia, Dr. Jorge Perez-Quezad​a from the University of Chile, and Gabriela Shirkey, PhD student from Michigan State University.

Contributed talks will be presented live on zoom, presentations are currently planned in the first two days of the program.
The length for contributed talks will be 15 minutes, including a short Q&A. The talks will be recorded, to be shared with the community after the meeting.

Posters will be presented in an interactive virtual poster room using the gather platform, where presenters can explain their work and engage with attendees. To facilitate setting up the virtual poster room, we will request a pdf file of the poster.

AmeriFlux Decadal Synthesis Workshop

Berkeley Lab—August 23-24, 2018
Chair Trevor Keenan; Co-Chairs Dave Moore and Ankur Desai.

This workshop focused on decadal synthesis, combined with the integration of flux measurements with other data sources (remote sensing, inventories, tree rings, phenology, etc.). We will also explore priorities for future eddy-covariance research, and outline a general synthesis of advances over the past decade. We envisage that this workshop will provide opportunities for new synthesis groups to form and grow. Meeting summary will be published in a journal; in preparation now. If you have questions, contact Trevor Keenan.
