The final diFUME papers are published in the Science of the Total Environment.

The main findings of diFUME project have been published as two linked papers in the international journal Science of the Total Environment. Both articles are open access and can be found here: 


Paper on CO2 emission reductions due to COVID-19 lockdown

This study is a collaborative work between several groups across Europe and beyond. The paper analyses district level CO2 fluxes measured by the eddy-covariance technique from 13 stations in 11 European cities to investigate the effects of the COVID19 lockdowns. 


diFUME Demonstration Event

At the 3rd of December 2021, 09:00 - 12:30, we organize the demonstration event of diFUME project which will bring together stakeholders from several disciplines and sectors to discuss their needs related to GHG emission data and the potentials or limitations of the observation-based methodologies in respect to their activities.


Summer measurement campaign of biogenic CO2 fluxes

In May 2021 we started the campaign for the measurement of CO2 fluxes in the urban forest of Lange Erlen with a portable Eddy Covariance installation. The direct measurements of CO2 flux will be used for the evaluation of the diFUME biogenic flux model. 


vPICO presentation in EGU2021

diFUME participated to the virtual EGU General Assembly 2021 with a vPICO presentation at 30/04/2021 in the Session "Science-based Greenhouse Gas Emission Estimates in Support of National and Sub-National Climate Change Mitigation".


diFUME presentation in ICOS2020

During the first day of ICOS 2020 Science Conference, at 15/09/2020, a presentation focussing on the Biogenic Fluxes modeling was given as part of diFUME project.


diFUME presentation in Current Studies Colloquium

diFUME overview and initial results were presented at 24/11/2020 in the framework of the Colloquium: Current Studies in Physical Geography and Atmospheric Sciences of the University of Basel. 


diFUME at EGU2020

EGU2020 was cancelled due to the COVID19 pandemic, but it is held online through Sharing Geoscience Online. diFUME is actively participating in the online conference with online material, presentation and commenting.


Call for Student Internship

We are looking for a student to be involved in the field measurement campaign for the biogenic CO2 flux estimation that will take place during April – September 2020 in the urban and peri-urban area of Basel.


diFUME overview presentation

An overview of diFUME project was presented at 29/10/2019 in the framework of the seminar cycles “Current Studies in Physical Geography and Atmospheric Sciences”.


Carbon dioxide fluxes in BLER station

For the purposes of diFUME, BLER site is now equipped with an IRGASON to measure CO2 flux, as a reference to the biogenic CO2 flux models that will be developed during diFUME.



This project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under the
