2023 AmeriFlux Data-Tech workshop
Date: May 10-11, 2023
Location: Berkeley, CA or virtual
Organizers: Sebastien Biraud, Stephen Chan, You-Wei Cheah, Danielle Christianson, Housen Chu, Sigrid Dengel, Gilberto Pastorello, and Christin Buechner
After a long hiatus, the AmeriFlux Management Project (AMP) will host a Data-Tech workshop in Berkeley on May 10-11, 2023. This is an informal, interactive workshop to learn from each other and AMP about how to run a safe site, collect high-quality measurements, and publish your data with AmeriFlux. We will cover a range of topics that are relevant to data providers, in hands-on, interactive sessions. Registration is free, lunch for two days will be provided (outdoors) for in-person attendees, and in-person attendees need to organize their own travel+accommodation. The classroom portions and the calibration lab visit will be held at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory. A lactation room is available in the same building, an all gender restroom is available in the adjacent building. Please don’t hesitate to get in touch with Christin Cbuechner@lbl.gov to discuss other accommodations.
We will also do a site visit to a flux site in the Sacramento Delta, about 2 hrs drive from Berkeley.
Workshop format – If possible, we encourage site technicians and data providers to attend this workshop in person, to take full advantage of the site visit, lab visit and informal networking opportunities. We will gladly make the ‘classroom’ sessions available via zoom and do our best to discuss specific cases with online participants throughout the workshop.
To vote for proposed topics or suggest your own, please fill out THIS FORM. We want this event to be useful to data providers, so please don’t hesitate to suggest topics!
