Linda Kooijmans is a postdoctoral researcher working at the Meteorology and Air Quality group of Wageningen University, The Netherlands. In her PhD research she did measurements of carbonyl sulfide (COS) in Hyytiälä. COS is a gas that can be used as a tracer of photosynthesis. Linda is visiting the micrometeorology and “optics of photosynthesis” groups in Helsinki from August until November 2018 to analyze measurements of both COS and fluorescence to learn more about photosynthesis.
Dr. Aino Korrensalo is visiting the micrometeorology group for two months, from beginning of May until the end of June 2018. She is a biologist working in University of Eastern Finland, Joensuu, and her PhD was about the temporal and spatial variation of carbon sink in the bog site of Siikaneva peatland. She is visiting the group to work with Pavel Alekseychik to downscale eddy covariance fluxes of CO2 and CH4 in Siikaneva bog.
|Dr. Lenka Krupková is a postdoc working at the Global Change Research Institute in Brno, Czech Republic. Her MSc degree is in computational biology and PhD in applied bioclimatology. She has been doing statistical modelling and data mining on eddy covariance and chamber measurements of CO2 and latent heat fluxes on the ecosystem scale, focusing mainly on forest ecosystems (spruce, beech, mixed broadleaf). She is visiting the group January-July 2018 and working on COS chamber and eddy covariance fluxes.|
|He currently hold the Theodore S. Coile Professorship of Hydrology and Micrometeorology at the Nicholas School of the Environment (since 2009), Duke University, in Durham North Carolina (USA). His research focuses on micro-meteorology and near-surface hydrology with emphasis on heat, momentum, carbon dioxide, water vapor, ozone, particulate matter (including aerosols, pollen, and seeds) and water transport in the soil-plant-atmosphere system as well as their implications to a plethora of hydrological, ecological, atmospheric and climate change related problems.|
|was group visitor Oct'13–Jun'14. He is an Emeritus Director of the Max-Planck-Institute for Biogeochemistry, Jena, Germany. His research focuses on observations and modelling of the biochemistry of the global carbon cycle and its connections to the climate system.|
|Ladislav Šigut is a PhD student from CzechGlobe (Brno, Czech Republic) and was visiting the group for several months during 2013.|
