I’m just setting up some eddy covariance experiments for Suldenferner in the Italian Alps. These meteorological instruments measure the 3D wind field and simultaneously air temperature and humidity fluxes, so it will be interesting to see whats happening over the debris-covered part of the glacier. The instruments should face into the prevailing wind, which, at this glacier, are interestingly not so much related to the glacier/valley wind system, but seem to be a sort of westerly flow overspill over the ridge, as relatively gentle, quasi-westerly flow has dominated over the last year.Wish us luck with our field measurement next week – we need good, stable weather and a lot of battery and muscle power to win this!!
