AmeriFlux Town Hall – AGU Fall Meeting 2019
December 9 @ 12:30 pm - 1:30 pm
Session Title: AmeriFlux: Flux Synthesis and the Year of Methane
Holy Cow! AmeriFlux has added 100 new sites since Spring 2018. As of April 2019, the network has 425 eddy covariance sites arrayed across North, Central, and South America. Come hear about new AmeriFlux sites in the Amazon. Speaking of cows, we are now well into our first theme year for network action: The Year of Methane. To enhance the quality and visibility of methane-flux science, the AmeriFlux Management Project (AMP) is providing technical, data, and community support, including LI-7700 instrument loaners and a flux-data portal. We are also hosting open workshops with the Global Carbon Project’s methane synthesis project, Coastal Carbon RCN, and others. On the CO2 front: come learn about the next generation of flux synthesis products (and the new open access code, ONEFlux) and the international preparation for the next FLUXNET synthesis data release. AMP would like your input on how we can support your science. As always, the town hall is also a good time to discuss your interests, priorities, and concerns, and catch up with your colleagues. See you there!
