Prof. Janusz Olejnik
The basic education of Prof. Janusz Olejnik is an experimental Physics and he did his Ph.D. in climatology. Since the beginning of his career, his scientific interests were: landscape-ecological impact of climate change, mass and energy exchange between land ecosystems and the atmosphere, causes, and consequences of climate changes, modern techniques of fluxes measurements, carbon and water cycle, micrometeorology. He was (or still is) a coordinator of over a dozen national and international research projects, including seven from EU funds. Among his numerous achievement, one of the most significant were a scholarship from the International Institute of Applied Systems Analyses (IASA) in Laxenburg, Austria, then two times from Alexander von Humboldt Foundation, which he spent in Munich and in Muncheberg, Germany, and one from Dekaban Foundation at the University of British Columbia at Vancouver, Canada.Prof. Janusz Olejnik is also a worldwide recognized scientist, active as a member of many national and international research and consultation groups. For instance, he was a representative of Poland in 4 Cost Actions, is currently a member of 4 Scientific Councils of Polish research institutions, and since 2021 a member of the National Council for Environmental Protection. For a couple of years now he is also the main initiator of building the ICOS network in Poland (Integrated Carbon Observation System) and acts as a Focal Point for the ICOS-PL project.Prof. Olejnik is very well known the creator of the first network of stations for the study of mass and energy exchange between forest ecosystems and the atmosphere in Poland using the eddy covariance method (currently there are 5 fully operational stations). He was the supervisor of about10 doctoral dissertations. Currently, he performs as the head of the Meteorology Laboratory at Poznan University of Life Sciences (PULS) and simultaneously the Director of the PULS doctoral school.

Luiza C. Campos
