    New Loobos ecosystem site turning into an attractive research infrastructure

    In March 2021, a new 38 m tall tower was built in Loobos, near Kootwijk. Along with the 6 m sea container, the site is becoming an attractive research infrastructure. Researchers from Wageningen University, Utrecht University and TU Delft have installed various sensors. The aim is to obtain the ICOS Ecosystem station label in May […]

    Paper on Canopy-DALES

    A new multi-layer representation for natural canopies is implemented and evaluated against a comprehensive of observations in DALES. Results show that surface fluxes such as evaporation, sensible heat and carbon dioxide change largely due to the presence of the canopy. These findings have implications on the simulation of atmospheric boundary layer and low-boundary layer clouds. […]

    New paper on current and future challenges on land-atmosphere interactions

    In a paper, recently published in Annals of the New York Academy of Sciences, researchers present four interconnected present and future challenges to study the interaction between land and atmosphere.¬†They argue that they are now in a position where by means of advanced instrumental techniques and fine-scale simulations, they can provide more accurate answers and […]
