FLUXNET ANNOUNCEMENTS

Masahito Ueyama is an associate professor of Graduate School of Life and Environmental Sciences at Osaka Prefecture University in Sakai, Japan. He has been a member of both AsiaFlux and AmeriFlux for 15 years, with flux tower sites located both in Japan and Alaska, USA. His research focuses on carbon dioxide and methane exchanges, in… More


Shenghua Gao wrapped up his appointment as a visiting scholar with the Center for Global Change and Earth Observations at Michigan State University June 28, 2019, after spending nine months with the Landscape Ecology and Ecosystem Science Lab (LEES), lead by Dr. Jiquan Chen. His appointment strengthened his analysis and offered him fresh perspectives on… More


Sara Knox is a new assistant professor at the University of British Columbia. She has been a member of the FLUXNET YSN community for several years. Her field sites stretch from California to Canada and she is involved in a global methane FLUXNET synthesis. We talked to her about her career path and about how… More


This month, we are pleased to interview Anne Griebel. Anne is an ecologist that was introduced to flux research during an internship at the USGS while doing her Masters in Physical Geography at the University of Bonn, Germany. Her first task was assisting with setting up an urban flux tower – and she was hooked from… More


The fluxcourse is a summer school focusing on land-atmosphere fluxes  and it takes place each summer at the University of Colorado Mountain Research Station. You can still apply for this year’s 12th edition (July 13-27 2019) until March 15th. This month, the organizers Kim Novick (Indiana University Bloomington) and Dave Moore (University of Arizona) will tell… More


Inviting the entire Arctic chamber flux community to participate on a survey of chamber flux metadata (Link to the survey) on behalf of Marguerite Mauritz, Anna Virkkala, and Ted Schuur Our project “Reconciling historical and contemporary trends in terrestrial carbon exchange of the northern permafrost-zone” aims to collect and aggregate Arctic and boreal chamber and tower CO2… More


Inviting the entire flux community to participate! Take the survey. on behalf of co-authors Sara Knox, Rob Jackson, and Ben Poulter As part of a recent Global Carbon Project methane budget activity funded by the Moore Foundation, we are organizing the collection and aggregation of global CH4 data from the flux tower community in coordination with… More


This month we interview Kazuhito Ichii — a Professor in the Center for Environmental Remote Sensing (CEReS), Chiba University, Japan. Kazu recently represented AsiaFlux to attend the FLUXNET 2017 workshop, and gave a presentation on the updates of AsiaFlux Network. Please tell us briefly about yourself and your lab. I recently joined Center for Environmental Remote… More


By Ladislav Šigut, Postdoc, Department of Matter and Energy Fluxes, Global Change Research Institute CAS, Czechia In this blog, we introduce several publicly available software/packages that the flux scientists/engineers have developed (or are developing) for data acquisition/processing/QAQC/manipulation. The list is intended for information sharing and may not be comprehensive. We welcome any feedback or comment… More


We are happy to announce that Prof. Jose Fuentes of Penn State, is the 2018 recipient of the American Meteorology Award for OUTSTANDING ACHIEVEMENT IN BIOMETEOROLOGY ‘For uncovering the significance and workings of key interactions among flora, fauna, and the atmosphere and their role in regional and global environmental change’ Congratulations, Jose


June 9, 2017 We just concluded the 2017 Fluxnet workshop.  About 114 scientists from across the globe converged in Berkeley, June 7-9, to discuss long term carbon and water flux measurements, data processing, flux interpretation, the new FLUXNET 2015 dataset and directions for the future. The meeting was divided into overviews of the regional networks,… More


FLUXNET2015 — a new data set to keep a sharper eye on land-air exchanges. The latest update of the longest global record of ecosystem carbon, water, and energy fluxes, features improved data quality, new data products, and more open data sharing policies……. (see link for the story) Twitchell Island (US-Twt) in the Sacramento–San Joaquin River Delta, California provides… More
