The research platform ‘iLEAPS’ (Integrated Land Ecosystem-Atmosphere Processes Studies) is one of several Future Earth research initiatives, with the critical goal of bringing together researchers from a variety of fields related to land-atmosphere exchange processes.

This includes, but is not limited to carbon, water and trace gas exchange, land use change, atmospheric composition, and the societal and related environmental issues.

AUT is proud to host the 6th iLEAPS Science Conference in 2023, in the vibrant city of Auckland and online, in conjunction with the yearly conference of the Australian/New Zealand Network for eddy covariance measurements (OzFlux).
