eLTER announces its call for funded Transnational Access (TA) and Remote Access (RA) for scientists working in the areas of biodiversity, biogeochemistry, hydrology or socio-ecological research.
All 38 sites in 19 countries are equipped with state-of-the-art instrumentation to enable comprehensive ecological measurement and experimental campaigns. The long-term data on those sites is available to compare with or to be used as a reference. Likewise, state-of-the-art socio-economic research is conducted at several of them. IT facilities are provided for data upload, storage and processing. Financial support is available.
Deadline for Submissions: 31 January 2022
Evaluation and notification of outcome: 15 March 2022

No âmbito do projeto LIFE Montado-Adapt, a UNAC (União da Floresta Mediterrânica) irá realizar na próxima 4ª feira, 15 de dezembro, a ação de formação em Marketing Digital, que tem por objetivo:
1) Preparar os proprietários de Montados para técnicas e ferramentas on-line de comunicação com a sociedade, sobre a sua gestão florestal sustentável, aumentando desta forma a consciência global sobre a importância dos Montados;
2) Dotar os proprietários de ferramentas on-line para comercialização/ divulgação dos seus produtos de origem agrícola e florestal, dado que a diversificação das produções é uma forma de adaptação às alterações climáticas que permite garantir a sustentabilidade económica.
Esta formação é dirigida prioritariamente aos parceiros do projeto, mas também é possível a participação de gestores de Montados que pretendam aderir à fase de replicação do projeto LIFE Montado-Adapt.
Para a inscrição deverão clicar no link abaixo que remete para o formulário de inscrição (a inscrição é gratuita). A formação está limitada a um total de 20 participantes.

The eLTER SPF Training working group is organising its first workshop on time series analysis, given by Ulrike Obertegger (FEM-CRI, Italy).
The workshop is open to everyone from students to researchers, independently of involvement in eLTER projects. The workshop will give an introduction to the challenges of time series data and demonstrate different analysis methods. This is not a technical course but a practical demonstration of what can be done to solve certain ecological questions.
All the analyses are done in R and thus a basic understanding of R coding is helpful but not necessary.

The workshop will be organised twice with the same content:
· Wednesday 1 December 2021 at 14:00-16:00 CET
· Monday 24 January 2022 at 14:00-16:00 CET

Outline:
· Introduction on basic terminology
· Classic time series analyses. Mann Kendall, Sen Theil trend estimation
· Change point analysis
· Modeling time series with cosine trends
· GAM
· Clustering of time-series with DTW

R-script and example data will be provided one week before the workshop.
