Sebastian Wolf attended the Open Conference on Climate Extremes and Biogeochemical Cycles
Date: 2 - 5 April 2013 Venue: Seefeld, Austria
Suzanne Tringe and Susanna Theroux from the Joint Genome Institute visited to discuss sampling microbes at the wetlands and understand who is producing methane and where.
Frank Anderson of USGS visited and gave a presentation on his trace gas flux measurements on Staton Island. He measured fluxes over corn fields flooded for water fowl, and non flooded.
