Student Assistant (m/f/d)

Student Assistant (m/f/d) for Measurements of Gas Fluxes between the Atmosphere and the Rur Reservoir

Weekly working hours: 6 hours

Start: as soon as possible

Project Content: The project aims to quantify the carbon dioxide (CO2) and methane (CH4) fluxes from the Rur Reservoir, their impacts on the global carbon cycle and climate change based on direct measurements at the reservoir.

Tasks: The student assistant will support the team from the Geoscientific Institute, Department of Meteorology, and the Environmental Modeling Working Group at the Institute for Crop Science and Resource Conservation. Tasks include preparing the measurement sensors in the form of a floating chamber, planning the measurement campaign logistically, conducting the on-site measurements, and analyzing the collected data.
