We are delighted to invite you to our joint conference AsiaFlux Workshop2019, which we celebrate the 20 year anniversary of foundation
of AsiaFlux.
AsiaFlux was founded in 1999 and we will have 20th anniversary workshop of AsiaFlux in October, 2019.
For the last 20 years, the AsiaFlux community has been working together to understand terrestrial ecosystem in Asia. We will review and
celebrate past 20 years activities and will discuss future development of our community toward improve and further understanding of
terrestrial ecosystems toward sustainability and quality of life in Asia.
The workshop will be held in Takayama-city, Japan -known as the site with the longest observation record in Asia.
We are looking forward to your participation.

    Professor Dennis D. Baldocchi
    Department of Environmental Science, Policy & management, University of California, Berkeley

    photo of Prof. Baldocchi Dennis Baldocchi is a professor of biometeorology at the University of California, Berkeley. He and his research group conduct experimental and theoretical studies on the physical, biological and chemical control of trace gas exchange between vegetation and the atmosphere. Goals of work are to predict fluxes of carbon, water and energy, mechanistically, everywhere, all of the time.
    Lines of inquiry have been along understanding how fluxes of mass and energy between ecosystems and the atmosphere vary along a spectrum of time and space scales in accordance with structure, function, weather and climate and management. Methods used include use of the eddy covariance method to measure net fluxes of mass and energy across the atmosphere-ecosystem interface. Data are interpreted and distilled through the lens of the CANVEG family of models, physiological measurements at the leaf scale and flux measurements across the soil-atmosphere interface.
    His current work focuses on: 1) the roles of management and ecological restoration on greenhouse gas fluxes of crops and wetlands; 2) the impact of weather, climate trends and variability, physiological stress, and structure and function on the greenhouse gas fluxes of savanna woodlands and annual grasslands; and 3) the upscaling and interpretation of fluxes across climatic and ecological gradients with the AmeriFlux and FLUXNET networks.
    Prof. Baldocchi has been principal investigator of Fluxnet since 1997 and is co-investigator of Ameriflux. He is a fellow of the American Geophysical Union, recipient of the American Meteorological Society Award for Outstanding Achievement in Biometeorology and a Clarivate Analytics Highly Cited Scientist over multiple years in Agricultural Science and once in Ecology/Environment.
    He served as Editor in Chief of the Journal of Geophysical Research, Biogeoscience, as subject editor of Global Change Biology and on the editorial boards of numerous other journals. He has served on numerous science advisory panels including the Max Planck Institute for Biogeochemistry and the Department of Energy, Biological and Environmental Research Division.

    Doctor Benjamin Bond-Lamberty
    Pacific Northwest National Laboratory, Joint Global Change Research Institute at the University of Maryland

    photo of Dr. Bond Lamberty Benjamin Bond-Lamberty (Ph.D., Forest Ecology and Management, University of Wisconsin-Madison, 2003) has over 15 years’ experience in ecological modeling, carbon cycle research, and mentoring. Since 2008 he has been employed by Pacific North-west National Laboratory, and currently supports four junior scientists while working with many other colleagues in academic and the National Lab system. He has been repeatedly recognized for his mentorship, reviewing, and high-impact science contributions.
    His current research interests focus on the numerical modeling of carbon cycling; soils and their resilience in the face of disturbance and climate change; and open, reproducible science.

    Professor Dario Papale
    University of Tuscia and Euro-Mediterranean Center on Climate Change (Italy)

    photo of Prof. Papale Dario Papale is Associate Professor of Forest Ecology and Remote Sensing in Forestry at the University of Tuscia (Viterbo, Italy) were he also got his PhD in Forest Management and Ecology in 2003 working on artificial neural networks and eddy covariance data. His research interests are in measurements of greenhouse gases exchanges at ecosystem scale and their use in data-model integration and empirical data-oriented models. Since 2004 he is scientific responsible of the European Eddy Covariance fluxes databases cluster where eddy covariance data standardization, quality control and uncertainty estimation are developed and applied.
    In the last years his main activity and interest has been the development and coherent growth of the global network of eddy covariance sites (FLUXNET). In this context, he was one of the organizer and member of the FLUXNET synthesis activities where fluxes measured using the eddy covariance technique in more than 250 sites worldwide are standardized, processed and made available to the scientific community. Since then, he continued to work on the development of new methods and techniques to enhance the quality of the eddy covariance measurements in particular in Europe and US. He is member of the AmeriFlux Management Project Team and he has been nominated in 2013 Director of the Ecosystem Thematic Centre of the Integrated Carbon Observation System (ICOS) in Europe.
    He published more than 90 papers in international journals and he is co-editor of a book on the Eddy Covariance technique.
