Greenhouse gases GHG - measurement, data analysis and policy advise

ClimBEco

Methane and carbon dioxide emissions are caused by numerous biogeochemical processes with spatial and
temporal variability. Greenhouse gas (GHG) measurement techniques such as: chamber measurement in form
of manual, automated (steady) and intelligent robot sampling, eddy covariance flux towers and various laser-
instruments using 13C/12C will be studied as hands-on during the course.


The student will learn:

  • Advanced knowledge of the biogeochemistry of GHG emission;
  • Applications of stable isotopes of elements in GHGs;
  • Strengths and weaknesses of various methods:chamber measurements and flux towers observing fluxes at landscape scale;
  • Calculating soil respiration and stem respiration from chamber data;
  • Understanding footprint and micro-metrology theory;
  • Analysis and interpretation of foot-print data;
  • Understanding methane emission from boreal upland and drained peatland forests;
  • Selection of appropriate methodologies to answer research question;
  • Global and local research questions about GHG;
  • Data analysis in groups and report writing of measurements from Skogaryd (Sites) will assess the year-round GHG emission at selected landscapes.  

Accommodation is made jointly at a local hostel ‘Örtagaarden’ in Lane-Ryr, a participation fee is for food and
any student not member of the ClimBEco school needs to pay for own accommodation.

Prior to that week a period of pre-study is expected. After the course week an individual report must be written up, submitted and approved.
