AmeriFlux Meetings and Workshops

AmeriFlux Data-Tech Workshop participants hike down from the tour of the Niwot Ridge flux towers. Colorado fall colors! September 21, 2016

With DOE, we co-sponsor annual AmeriFlux Principal Investigators Meetings, where all members of the AmeriFlux community are welcome. We also organize annual AmeriFlux Data and Tech Workshops, where attendees can get practical advice and hands-on training. As the community requests, we hold workshops on special topics.


AmeriFlux Decadal Synthesis Workshop

Berkeley Lab—August 23-24, 2018
Chair Trevor Keenan; Co-Chairs Dave Moore and Ankur Desai.

Registration is now closed. If you have questions, contact Trevor Keenan.

This workshop will focus on decadal synthesis, combined with the integration of flux measurements with other data sources (remote sensing, inventories, tree rings, phenology, etc.). We will also explore priorities for future eddy-covariance research, and outline a general synthesis of advances over the past decade. We envisage that this workshop will provide opportunities for new synthesis groups to form and grow. Time for these discussions will be set aside.
