Description of the research topic:
Measurement and modelling of the surface-biosphere-atmosphere interactions and planetary boundary layer (PBL) processes are important topics. In the past few years we took part in several national and international research programs. Modelling (SVAT, WRF), measurement (radiation budget, eddy covariance, UAV instruments, fog) and method-developments are also performed within our team. The concrete topics will be selected after discussion with the candidate. Few suggested themes: (i) development of reference surface energy budget and PBL datasets and its application in environmental science, climate service and in the agrometeorology; (ii) development of eddy covariance system for aerosol flux measurements (construction, field measurements, quality assurance) ; (iii) optimization of wind- and solar energy forecast based on numerical model results (WRF), micrometeorological measurements, wind turbine and solar power plant production datasets, and iv) SVAT modelling of energy budget components and evapotranspiration using long term station and gridded climatological dataset for agrometeorological and ecological purposes.
