  Information - BG1.01 From biogenic primary exchange to atmospheric fluxes of reactive trace gases

Event Information
The biosphere is substantially involved in the production and consumption
of reactive trace gases such as volatile organic compounds, nitrogen oxides
and reduced sulphur compounds, thereby significantly contributing to
chemical processes in the atmosphere. There are major uncertainties
associated with descriptions of the processes controlling
surface-atmosphere trace gas exchange on all scales from biological
production to primary emissions up to flux measurements on larger scales.
Therefore, biological processes and exchange regulations involved in the
production and release as well as deposition and consumption of all these
compounds are actually under intensive investigation in order to understand
and model exchange processes and atmospheric chemistry in a more reliable
way. The session is open to all contributions related to aspects of
biosynthesis of reactive trace compounds, their consumption and exchange
regulation as well as exchange studies at various spatial and temporal
scales ranging from enclosure measurements to turbulent flux measurement
and boundary layer profiling techniques.
