The Annual Meeting of the project will take place in Middelburg (Eastern Cape) in South Africa. 19 registered participants from Germany and the African partner institutions will present first research results, but also discuss the reorientation of the projects from a comparison of Sambian and South African to entirely South African study sites.
Before the meeting Thünen personnel will set up the two eddy covariance sites at pastures of the Grootfontein Agricultural Development Institute. There the effect of differences in grazing intensity on carbon and energy fluxes will be investigated.Dr. Christian Brümmer (TI-AK) and Azwitamisi Mudau (CSIR) selecting locations for the Eddy Covariance Sites
