Carbon Flux Workshop

Date: 16th November 2021

The research on carbon flux in Taiwan has been conducted for 15 years. With the continuous efforts of many researchers, the research has provided a lot of important information and scientific understanding on the carbon and water cycle and ecosystem services of forest ecosystems. Currently there are five forest carbon flux research stations in Taiwan, including the semi-natural forest at Cilan Mountain in the mid-altitude cloud belt, the natural forest at Lianhuachih Research Center, the cedar forest at Sitou, Linhousilin Forest Park at Pingtung and Danongdafu Forest Park at Hualien. These flux research stations construct various pattern of carbon, water and energy flux in forest ecosystems. To compile the observational research results from different flux stations, and to further integrate and analyze the data, CIRES plans to organize a series of workshop and seminars and invites researchers from the mentioned flux stations for discussions.

The first Taiwan Carbon Flux Research Symposium was held on 16th & 17th December 2021 at the College of Environmental Studies, NDHU. Dr. Jehn-Yih Juang from National Taiwan University (Cilan Mountain), Dr. Yen-Jen Lai from National Taiwan University (Sitou and Linhousilin Forest Park), Dr. Yi-Ying Chen from Academia Sinica (Lianhuachih Research Center) and Dr. Shih-Chieh Chang from National Dong Hwa University (Danongdafu Forest Park) were invited to the symposium. The agenda included the carbon flux data analysis methods between the stations, as well as the carbon flux’s day and night changes, seasonal cycles, long-term patterns and ecosystem responses to short-term meteorological events. This was an invitation only event. There was an afternoon session after the symposium which was open to faculties and students of our university and also those who are interested in carbon flux research.
