Research Focus

Area of micrometeorology and agricultural science. Main focus on measurement of water fluxes from agricultural landscape (sap flow, eddy covariance, Bowen ratio energy balance method). Management, analysis, interpretation and publication of data outputs. Technical support for a network of meteorological weather stations and other infrastructure at the experimental measurement sites accross the Czech Republic and Austria.
