Research site Obermieming

The Forest-Atmosphere-Interaction-Research (FAIR) research site Obermieming is located in a red pine forest at an elevation of 980 m a.s.l. in the municipality of Mieming. Researchers of the Departments of Ecology, Botany, Geography and Atmospheric and Cryospheric Sciences work together to equip this site with a 30 m and a 6 m tower to measure micrometeorological and ecophysiological data. Additionally, an air-conditioned measurement container, supplied with electricity and wireless internet connection enables rapid data transfer.

This infrastructure will facilitate cooperative research projects combining open questions on botany, ecology, biometeorology and atmospheric chemistry of forest habitats.
