AmeriFlux Land-Atmosphere Interactions Workshop
10 June 2021 - 11 June 2021https://ameriflux.lbl.gov/community/ameriflux-meetings-workshops/land-atmosphere-interaction-workshop-overview/
From June 10 to 11, 2021, join colleagues for an interactive, virtual workshop with leaders in the field of land-atmosphere interactions.
The workshop, “Improving understanding of land-atmosphere interactions through integration of surface flux and atmospheric boundary layer measurements,” is in support of the AmeriFlux “Year of Water Fluxes,” and features community representation from the U.S. Department of Energy’s Atmospheric Radiation Measurement (ARM) user facility and Atmospheric System Research (ASR) program.
The workshop will address the following questions:
- What are the high-priority research questions that can be addressed with existing measurements?
- What new boundary layer measurements should be prioritized, and where? What are the cutting-edge research questions that could be addressed with these new measurements?
- What is needed to increase interdisciplinary collaboration between ecologists/biogeoscientists and atmospheric scientists? How can we best share tools that are necessary to process, analyze, and interpret boundary layer measurements?
- How can this kind of collaboration improve predictive understanding of biosphere-atmosphere interactions and land-atmosphere coupling?
Registration is free and open to interested researchers around the world. The registration portal will open soon, and will close on May 25.

Registration closes June 1, 2021.
