Determining the effect of plant carbon allocation on the Climate–Carbon Cycle Feedback through variational Data Assimilation. Fully funded PhD studenship (CONACYT, Mexico): Andrea Hurtado Mendoza-Rosales (2012-)
FENFLUX is a project run by the Department of Geography, University of Leicester (UoL) and the Centre of Ecology and Hydrology (CEH) in Wallingford in Wicken Fen. UoL runs a flux site in Baker's Fen, an area that is under restoration management since 1999after arable agriculture and CEH runs a flux site in Sedge Fen, an ancient Fen.
The aims of FENFLUX are to:
