Last week we had the opportunity to host a science discovery stage for three high school teachers. Our guests came from three local institutions: Lycée des Métiers de la Mer (Gujan-Mestras), Lycée Polyvalent Victor Louis (Talance) and Lycée General et
In the past few years, carbonyl sulphide (COS or OCS) has emerged as a new promising trace gas to estimate gross primary productivity (GPP, that is how much carbon plants can remove from the atmosphere, check this if you want
Two weeks ago I traveled to Hyytiälä, a fabulous field station 3 h north of Helsinki (Finland). The aim was to meet with about 30 other researchers, at first sight first sight, the group appeared quite heterogeneous, you could find
Matthias visits the ECOFUN team to work on some global runs with his model MECBETH as part of the SOLCA project. Basically Jerome, Matthias and Thomas spent many hours together in a small room like this until they had produced
After an intense few days discussing soil microbial COS and CO18O exchange the ECOFUN team treat their guests to a night out in the beautiful Chartrons area of Bordeaux.
Last week half of our team met in Vienna for the general assembly of the European Geosciences Union 2016. All our presentations and contributions had great success: Jérôme Ogée gave a talk on incorporating novel tracers into a global modelling
The EcoFun team will be well represented at the next EGU meeting held in Vienna, Austria (17-22 April 2016), with a total of six presentations, one organised session and a splinter meeting. Check out the schedule! SMP31 COSANOVA network meeting
Two EcoFun members have participated in a study forecasting large-scale, drought-induced tree mortality in the southwestern US. The study is now published in Nature Climate Change. See figure below or here or there for more details. The study has been covered by
The EcoFun team will be well represented at the next AGU meeting held in San Francisco, California (13-18 Dec 2015), with a total of four poster, four oral presentations and two primary speakers. Check out the schedule!
A new discussion paper on modelling soil OCS transport and fluxes is currently under review in Biogeosciences discussion. This paper presents a steady-state model of soil OCS deposition rates and test it against previously-published datasets. See here and post your comments!
