Enjoying the trainee experience with HoliSoils
Among the many people involved in HoliSoils, there are also young researchers and trainees who are increasing their knowledge and skills through the activities of this project. Jakub Tomes, a trainee at Natural Resources Institute Finland (Luke) involved with HoliSoils’ field experiment in Finland, described his experience with these words:
“As a part of a LUKE’s working group I participated in measuring GHG emissions from forest soils. We measured CO2 and methane fluxes with LI-COR devices across southern Finland on different sites such as Tammela and Nastola. And also as a member of LUKE’s team I was helping with taking deep core samples and soil samples seeving from drained peatland at Ränskalalankorpi.
This traineeship has given me better and deeper understanding of respiration of forest soils. I have learned how to work with LI-COR and the traineeship has helped me cope with problems in the field conditions fast.
I hope I will have the opportunity to be a part of their team again.”
