TEAM – TRACE GAS EXCHANGE IN THE EARTH-ATMOSPHERE SYSTEM ON MULTIPLE SCALES
TEAM is a Helmholtz Young Investigator Group that started in 2012 and focuses on land-atmosphere interactions and the exchange of carbon dioxide and methane on multiple spatial scales.
Our study sites are located in the permafrost regions of Alaska, Canada, and Siberia and in a mire in North-East Germany. To investigate processes on local and regional scales, we work with data from stationary micro-meteorological tower systems and airborne measurements. Currently, we have established a long-term observation site in Zarnekow in Mecklenburg-Vorpommern, which belongs to the German Terrestrial Environmental Observatories Network (TERENO), while the airborne measurements are conducted on a campaign basis. These campaigns have led us to Alaska and Canada in 2012 and 2013 aboard the Alfred Wegener Institute’s Polar 5 research aircraft and to the northeastern Siberian Lena River Delta in 2012, where we used local Russian helicopters for our measurements.
In this blog scientists from Helmholtz Centre Potsdam – GFZ German Research Centre for Geosciences write about our research both in Germany and especially during our expeditions to the Arctic.
