Experimental energy and gas exchange ATS546

Snapshots from ATS546

Advanced undergraduate and graduate level class on field experimental methods to quantify the atmospheric carbon dioxide, water, methane, heat, momentum, and radiative exchange at the vegetation-land-ocean-air interface. Techniques include bulk and gradient approaches, and eddy covariance. The central activity consists of student teams designing and conducting a field experiment, analyzing and interpreting observations, and presenting results. The class is delivered as a mix of introductory lectures (2 weeks), design and calibration of instrument in the laboratory (2 weeks), field deployment and data collection (1 to 2 weeks), data analysis and interpretation in the computer lab (2 weeks), and presentation of group and individual projects (1 week).

Instructor: Christoph Thomas will teach this class in spring term 2013, 2015, etc
