From the 3rd to 9th September, a group of young scientists came together for the inaugural Greenhouse Gas Summer School, hosted by Gothenburg University at Skogaryd Research Catchment, Sweden. The course introduced students to state of the art greenhouse gas measurement techniques including several forms of eddy covariance, footprint modelling, chamber measurements and isotopic analysis.
In-depth lectures from leaders in the field were followed by excursions to measurement sites and practical data analysis exercises. The discussions also focused on the importance of site management practices and national greenhouse gas reporting.
With participants representing 10 countries and 11 universities, the course offered a warm and friendly atmosphere for exchanging ideas. Skogaryd Research Catchment, part of SITES, features 5 subsites and pioneering new greenhouse gas measurement techniques. Despite the rain, the course was a resounding success and will be hosted next year by the ClimbEco group at Lund University.
