Gain hands-on experience in sensor and weather tower construction and learn how to collect carbon flux data, process data from popular data-loggers, as well as learn the fundamental terminology, concepts, principles, processes and applications in natural science. The eddy-covariance method will be introduced and students will contruct their own towers as their term project. Additional methods will also be covered, including biophysical models and how to scale up in situ measurements usting satellite data.
Classes are expected to last until early November 2017 and the term paper is due by the end of the semester. Course materials will be listed here for educational use only.
Schedule Reminder We've set aside the following dates for full-day classes 11AM-7PM, or longer as needed: October 3rd, 10th, and 17th.
