This video explains the formation of thermal lows and highs based on a sea breeze example. It was created with Adobe Animate CC and is provided as teaching material for courses.

DTM 1m (derived from LiDAR survey)

Brenner Silva, Joerg Zeilinger & Thomas Lotz
This Digital Terrain Model (DTM) is created using linear interpolation applied on ground-class points of the LiDAR data. The helicopter-based survey of the Rio San Francisco catchment has been conducted in the periods of March 7-17, 2012 and November 12-19, 2012. Coordinate System UTM, Datum WGS84, Zone 17S, and Geoid EGM96 - for orthometric height - are used. The horizontal accuracy is within 5cm (based on control landmark of the IGM geodetic network). Quality assurance...

Monthly ground fog frequency maps for Taiwan (2003-2014).

Martin Schulz
Ground fog masks were created from MODIS data from 2003 to 2014 using the method DOGMA. From those masks the ground fog frequency was calculated for each month separately.

Longterm time series of the Giessen Free Air Carbon Enrichment experiment (GiFACE) experiment

Wolfgang Obermeier
Within the experiment, a permanent temperate grassland is treated with elevated CO2 (~20% during daylight hours). In three rings the air is enriched with CO2 while other three rings act under atmospheric CO2 (control). This dataset contains the ring-wise late-summer yields as well as the ring-wise CO2 concentrations (averaged in the three months before harvest) and other variables describing the environmental conditions (likewise aggregated to their average in the three months preceding harvest; respectively sum...

Arctiinae species abundance 1999-2000 (species-site matrix)

Dirk Suessenbach, Konrad Fiedler & Christine Wallis
Nocturnal moths were sampled on 20 plots during three periods between 1999 and 2000 using light traps equipped with two backlight 15 W tubes operated between 18:30 and 21:30 local time (UTC-5:00). Catches were restricted to periods from three days after full moon until five days before full moon. Specimens were sorted to morphospecies within arctiinae moths (Erebidae: Arctiinae). For further information and details on the sampling sites see: Süßenbach, D. (2003): Diversität von Nachtfaltergemeinschaften...

Tabebuia Bulletins, Issue: 3

DFG PAK 823-825
After the coordinators’ updating of the state of research and introducing the new name of this publication, they summarize the important elements of the program for knowledge transfer to stakeholders. The local advisory board informs about a landslide which hit research grounds. Science papers in this issue
• compare tropical montane elevation transects in Ecuador and Peru
• analyze the relationship of decomposer communities and leaf litter types
• demonstrate how fertilization influences the...

Bird species abundance in the San Francisco Valley

Christine Wallis & Detlev Paulsch
Bird species (elevational gradient: 1800-2530m) occurrence and abundance has been collected by a trained observer in 30 forest sites in the study area under favorable weather conditions at 6:00–10:00 and 16:00–18:00 (UTC ?5:00) between 2000 and 2002 (Paulsch and Müller-Hohenstein, 2008). Standardized point counts (30 min) were repeated 12 times per site and combined with mist-netting data to comprehensively assess the bird assemblages.

GiFACE - Climate predictors and aboveground biomasses for the period 1998 to 2015.

Wolfgang Obermeier
This dataset contains the predictor and dependent variables for the prediction of C3 grassland biomass productivity based on potential future climate regimes. The data was collected at the Giessen Free Air Carbon Enrichment (GiFACE) experiment. All variables are named according to the article "Reduced summer aboveground productivity in temperate C3 grasslands under future climate regimes". All climate predictor values are aggregated within 90 days prior to each September harvest. Aboveground biomasses are treatment-wise averaged.

Canopy soil CO2, CH4 and N2O flux NUMEX

Amanda Matson
Measurements of gas flux (CO2, CH4, N2O) in canopy soils of NUMEX plots on four dates (Sept/Nov 2011 and Jan/April 2012). Measurements were taken in 3 of the 4 NUMEX blocks at each elevation; treatments measured included C, N, NP and P.

TMF Newsletter, Issue: 17

DFG Research Unit 816
The Newsletter presents a summary of five years of research (Speakers’ Corner) and provides insight in latest results of the nutrient addition experiments, the competition between bracken and pasture grass, mycorrhization, climate change research and recent modelings, the advances of the data warehouse and the Laser Scanning Mission as well as achievements in afforestation experiments (Science News). This issue also informs about recent progress of the foundation NCI, the status of the two transfer projects...

Tabebuia Bulletin, Issue: 4

DFG PAK 823-825
Tabebuia Bulletin Issue no 4, December 2015

The issue presents a bunch of Science and Knowledge-Transfer News. The first full-length paper in this journal shows in a model how the equilibrium between the pasture grass (Setaria) and the competing weed (bracken) depends on the temperature of the site, in other words on the elevation of the pasture.
In the mountain rainforest, tree roots and the mycorrhiza fungi respond species-specifically to nutrient manipulations. Phosphate...

Geometridae species abundance 1999-2000 (species-site matrix)

Gunnar Brehm, Konrad Fiedler & Christine Wallis
Nocturnal moths were sampled on 20 plots during three periods between 1999 and 2000 using light traps equipped with two backlight 15 W tubes operated between 18:30 and 21:30 local time (UTC-5:00). Catches were restricted to periods from three days after full moon until five days before full moon. Specimens were sorted to morphospecies within geometrid moths (Geometridae). Data from the PHD-thesis of Dr. Gunnar Brehm. For additional information on methods and sites see: Brehm,...
