>> Eddy Covariance 2015

1.  General information

Date: October 05 - 09, 2020 \\ Location: Lecture Hall, MPI for Biogeochemistry, Jena
Teacher: Mathias Goeckede, Olaf Kolle, Mirco Migliavacca, Tarek El-Madany


This workshop will cover 4 1/2 days, split up into Basics at the beginning, followed by the Post-processing and excursion. The course itself will consist of lectures, hands-on classes with software tools, instrument sessions the laboratory, and an excursion to the MPI-BGC field site in Gebesee.
