Information

Aims, contents and method of the course

- to understand the importance of measuring and monitoring greenhouse gas (GHG) exchange between atmosphere and biosphere in wetlands
- to understand the different greenhouse gas measurement techniques
- to get practical experience of taking GHG measurements applying the closed chamber technique
- to get practical experience of taking GHG measurements applying the eddy covariance technique
The course will be taught through presentations, practical exercises, project works and a field excursion to a nearby GHG measurement station (Lake Neusiedl). You will gain practical experience of working on GHG measurements and data and we hope that you will gain ideas for your self-chosen project.

Assessment and permitted materials

Presentation of course topics, submissions, small self-chosen project of measuring GHG in teams of 2-3 people + presentation of first results + scientific documentation, participation

Minimum requirements and assessment criteria

20% Presentation of course topics (incl. discussions)
30% Submission of exercises (10% each)
50% Project (presentation and scientific report of self-chosen project)

Key:
≥ 87% = „Very good“
≥ 75% = „Good“
≥ 63% = „Satisfactory“
≥ 50% = „Sufficient“
< 50% = „Deficient“
