FLUXCOM Workshop, 2017​

16th-18thMay, 2017

Max Planck Institute for Biogeochemistry, Jena, Germany

The FLUXCOM initiative (www.fluxcom.org) has produced a large ensemble of (new) FLUXNET derived global products of carbon and energy fluxes. As these data products are opening up for the scientific community, we will organize a workshop to bring together the „producers” and the potential „users“ of the data products.

The workshop will focus on the potential applications related to model evaluation, informing inversion approaches, corroborating with new remote sensing data streams, synthesizing budgets, solving puzzles, etc. In particular, the workshop will deal with four broad themes:

  1. FLUXCOM - what's behind.
  2. Evaluations and cross-consistency checks of the global products.
  3. Applications.
  4. Future avenues.

​As we hope to have a lot of good discussions for putting together ideas, all sessions will be organized as plenary with no break-out groups.

​Therefore, FLUXCOM designed two complementary strategies:
