Students learn about the fundamental processes that influence the energy and matter balance of forest ecosystems as well as the methodologies to measure energy and gas fluxes above forests. They will understand the basics of climate and weather systems and bioclimatology, and learn how terrestrial carbon sink can be modeled.
