LUCCI scientists in media

Several LUCCI related researchers appeared in media during November

"Forestry without clear-cuts"
Newspaper Dagens ETC reports from Romperod where Patrik Vestin, Anders Lindroth and Michal Heliasz has established a tower for gas flux measurements. The forest in this area in interesting since it is not kept the konventional way but farmed carfully, and has never been clear cut. The researchers are exploring whether this kind of forestry is keeping the carbon dioxide in the ground better than the usual clear cuts. But researchers at SLU is convinced the hypthesis is wrong, and say that his colleagues in Lund do not understand forestry. But Anders Lindroth says that there is yet little knowledge about continuous forestry and how it relates to the climate change.
-It is just a hypothesis, but I believe in it, says Anders Lindroth to Dagens ETC.

"Geologist impressed by millstone pit"
Dalarnas tidningar reports on a visit from geology professor Birger Schmitz in Malung, Dalarna. In connection to lectures in the high school in the village as well as for the public, the visiting professor took a tour in the millstone pit in the area, which is now a cultural reserve.
-It might not sound very interesting, but I am impressed. It must have been something special about this particular sandstone, as it was mined with such magnitude for several hundred years, the professor says to the newspaper.

LUCCI at the library

2014-11-13: LUCCI held on Monday 10 November an event:"Kolets kretslopp och klimatet: ett gammalt men svajigt förhållande", at the public library in Lund where everybody were to listen to presentations (in Swedish) and talk about the relationship between carbon cycling and climate over a long time horizon. The event was very much appreciated both by audience and the performing scientists, and will possibly be followed by visits to other nearby libraries.

In addition to the evening with scientific presentations, there was is an exhibition at the library with photos from research. It is still possible to have a look at those for a few more days.
