From Black to Green Triangle


Explore the Atmospheric and Climate Science Anchor Station Oberbärenburg (OBB) and its context in the Upper Eastern Erzgebirge.


Monday, 27.05.2013

Guidance: Prof. Dr. Jörg Matschullat and team

Transport by bus
Departure at 8:30 a.m. at Dresden Main Station at the bus station (Bayrische Str.)

Inaugurated in 1984, the station features two towers, a canopy and an open field site with laboratory containers and a broad range of state-of-the-art instruments to gather meteorological data and samples for atmospheric chemistry (aerosols, gases, wet deposition).

We will discuss climate change - atmospheric chemistry-related interactions. This will include the specific role of forests and trees as well as entire biomes, and shall encompass both the climate change to atmospheric conditions and vegetation pathways as well as reversely the vegetation-triggered feedback processes.

Depending on weather conditions, we will not only visit the site and explain research activities and collaboration option but introduce the participants to the particular conditions of this mid-elevation mountain site and its surroundings with dense forests, extensive bogs at the edge of the Erzgebirge along the German-Czech border – part of the former infamous „Black Triangle“.

Direct transfer (with on-route explanations) to Oberbärenburg via Dippoldiswalde (Malter Reservoir) and Kipsdorf.

Participants might like to take some small snack and beverages along, according to personal needs.
Rain gear may be advisable (weather-dependent).
