Eddy Covariance Application and Data Processing Workshop (1.5 Days)
Description: This workshop introduces the eddy covariance methodology for measuring gas fluxes at the ecosystem-atmosphere interface. Eddy Covariance and instrument theory will be covered through the morning session. In the afternoon sessions, discussion covers applications, experimental design, and installation & deployment. Day two will start with data monitoring and system maintenance. Subsequent topics will cover data management, the processing of fluxes, and the post-processing analysis. The morning session and course will conclude with discussion of supplemental biological measurements.
Participants are encouraged to bring a laptop to use during this session. Example data sets will be provided for the exercise, but participants are welcome to bring their own data to work with. Prior to the workshop, please download the latest version of EddyPro from the following link: EddyPro Software Download (Windows and macOS available).
