Training at LI-COR

This past week I traveled to a snowy Lincoln, Nebraska to take part in LI-COR’s training course on the LI-6400XT.  Alistair and I will be taking four LI-6400XTs up to Barrow this summer to measure gas exchange.  At the three day course I learned the basics of the 6400, took the entire instrument apart (and then put it back together) and took my first measurements.  The course taught me a lot about the things we can achieve this summer in Barrow and with some more practice over the next two months I will be ready to clamp on to my first Arctic plant and start collecting data.
