Site visit to Pleistocene Park Russia planned

The project technician will be traveling to Cherskiy in September to assist our Russian colleagues with maintainance, calibration and some repairs to the 35 m eddy tower at Pleistocene Park.   Some damage occurred over the winter and during heavy flooding this spring.  Main items to replace are power supplies, net radiometer and the tower data and power cables.  We will add a second set of flux instruments at a lower height on the tower which will serve to better measure the vertical CO2 gradient and help resolve spatial resolution of the flux data.
