Infrastructure

    Infrastructure Details

    Name of national/international infrastructure this infrastructure belongs to

    Supplying data to FLUXNET (http://fluxnet.fluxdata.org/) and to International soil moisture network (https://ismn.geo.tuwien.ac.at/).

    Description

    Meteorological and environmental measurement with focus on climate, carbon fluxes and remote sensing. Frequent cooperation with research groups in several countries. We have local personnel on the ground at both sites that can support additional measurements etc.
