MSc projects using SIPNET at KCL

Some of my MSc students have been trying to applying the same principles to other sites with varying degrees of success

2007/08 We had a go at Duke Forest. Files and such are in the correct format but there was little exploration of the parameterization at Duke.

2008/09 David Yong (MSc. KCL EMMM) explored Tharandt Forest, Germany, Loobos Forest, Netherlands, Norunda Forest, Sweden.
David's thesis ended up focusing on Tharandt Forest and he made a good start at getting the parameterizations working. Dave had a go at doing some climate sensitivity at the site. We could make some more progress on Tharandt if someone had time to take this forward.

Figure above shows observed half-daily NEE from 1998 to 2003 compared to the output of SIPNET optimized on CO2 fluxes from the Tharandt.
In a related project Laura Green (MSc. KCL EMMM) looked at changes in Albedo in some of the same forests.
