LI-COR is hosting a free, 3-day lecture series on ecosystem flux. This event offers a comprehensive dialogue on data—from recent processing advancements and monitoring to management and analysis. Additionally, the series will introduce eddy covariance theory and applications as well as leaf-level and soil gas flux measurements. To register please complete the registration form.

Martin Beland (at Laval University, Canada) just sent us the white paper he co-wrote with Geoffrey Parker, David Harding, Chris Hopkinson, Laura Chasmer, and Alexander Antonarakis. Thanks from the community to the authors! See AmeriFlux Reports. “Our aim is to inform the AmeriFlux community on existing and upcoming LiDAR technologies (atmospheric Doppler or Raman LiDAR often deployed at flux… More

What is Our Method?

(Dennis Baldocchi, author.) I have a new graduate student who is taking introductory classes with a diverse group of environmental science students. In their discussions, they are comparing how each one does their science. So in our weekly discussions, the question came back to me as to “What is our Method?” This is a good… More
