Our work on detecting hot spots of methane flux was selected for featuring as an Editor’s Highlight on Eos.org: https://eos.org/editor-highlights/sleuthing-for-culprits-of-greenhouse-gas-emissions. We are very honored and grateful to receive this recognition.
We welcome the arrival of Jagriti Suneja to the Integrative Biometeorology Lab. Jagriti holds a bachelors degree in Botany and a master’s degree in environmental management and has great experience working on air quality research at the Indian Institute of Technology Delhi (IIT-D). She joins as a PhD student and will be working on projects…
PI Camilo Rey-Sanchez has published his work on Detecting Hot Spots of Methane Flux Using Footprint-Weighted Flux Maps This paper presents a tool to detect hot spots of methane flux and other trace gases around eddy covariance towers and it can be applied using the following code: https://github.com/Camilo-Rey/Footprint-Weighed-Flux-Maps
I am very happy to announce that the ceilometer for measuring cloud base heights and boundary layer heights has been installed in the Lake Wheeler Road Station. In the back of the picture is PhD student Roger Turnau, who is interested in using boundary layer heights to understand heat waves and in the front PI Camilo…
PI Camilo Rey-Sanchez met with Ellie and Thomas from WindLift to measure wind profiles using the mini Sodar. Windlift is a company that is planning to harvest wind energy with mobile turbines through the use of tethered aircraft. Really cool concept. More information at their website https://windlift.com/
Dr. Rey-Sanchez had the pleasure of visiting Appalachian State University to give a seminar talk titled “How do different land covers affect the height of the atmospheric boundary layer”. Special thanks to Dr. Sarah Carmichael and Dr. William Armstrong for the invitation and for hosting.
PI Camilo Rey-Sanchez has published his postdoctoral work studying annual dynamics of atmospheric boundary layer height in JGR Atmospheres.
The new lab website has been created. This is a space to share our research goals and research progress. We hope to start adding more content within the next months and start recruiting graduate and undergraduate students at NC State soon.
