On August 26 – September 4, 2016 Yugra State University hosted the Summer School “Functioning of boreal raised bogs of West Siberia and their response to climate change”. The School was organized together with University of Helsinki, Finland and Lund University, Sweden with support of the Nordic-Russian Cooperation Programme in Education and Research. Continue reading
Summer School “Functioning of boreal raised bogs of West Siberia and their response to climate change” will be organized by Yugra State University, Khanty-Mansiysk, Russia, University of Helsinki, Finland and Lund University, Sweden with support of the Nordic-Russian Cooperation Programme in Education and Research.
The School will take place on August 26 – September 4, 2016. The program will include field trips, taking measurements, laboratory work, data analysis, a workshop in micrometeorological greenhouse gas measurement techniques (eddy-covariance) etc. Participants can get scholarships to cover travel expenses and fee. More information is available here.
In late April researchers from the Department of Physics of University of Helsinki Dr. Ivan Mammarella and M.Sc. Pavel Alekseychik visited Yugra State University (YSU), Khanty-Mansiysk. They spent a few days at the International field station “Mukhrino” collecting and processing data using the eddy covariance method.
This method allows to acquire more reliable estimates for gas exchange (CO2 and water vapor) between the ecosystem and the atmosphere. In future this makes it possible to forecast climate change in a particular region. It is worth noticing that there are only few operating eddy covariance facilities in Russia. Continue reading
The delegation of meteorology researchers from University of Helsinki have visited Yugra State University for the second time during this year. Early in April they installed Eddy Covariance system (micrometeorological method) at the premises of Mukhrino Field Station. During the stay the scientists organized a school for young researchers dedicated to data processing methods acquired by the aforementioned method.
Finnish colleagues are interested in cooperation with Yugra State University as there are only few Eddy Covariance facilities in Russia which allow to measure carbon dioxide flows and calculate another data such as wind speed and direction, at large distances. Continue reading
