Please follow this link for the Carbon workshop 2015:
This 1 week ICOS-NEON greenhouse gas data training workshop is aimed primarily at early career scientists including advanced PhD students, postdocs, and Junior Faculty. The motivation is to use in-situ data to address emerging issues in carbon cycle science including atmospheric science, biogeochemistry and ecosystem science. This workshop will provide the opportunity to learn how to use ‘big data' from the ICOS and NEON large networks of observatories while discussing the frontier of carbon science and identifying new research opportunities.
ICOS and NEON research infrastructures are in-situ observation networks providing research data on greenhouse gas fluxes from ecosystems to the atmosphere. Together, ICOS and NEON aim to make these data available without technical, scientific or political barrier. These data typically include greenhouse gas (GHG) concentration, carbon and energy flux observations, and the surface micrometeorology surrounding these measurements. ICOS and NEON are funded by the European Commission FP7 and US National Science Foundation (NSF).
This workshop is funded by EU FP7 project COOPEUS.
