  • Methods
    Sampling Description
    Fluxes are determined as half hour averages of 10 Hz covariance measurements of vertical wind speed and the scalar of interest (e.g. CO2).

    Method Step

    Description
    The eddy covariance method (Dennis Baldocchi at Cal Berkeley)

    Baldocchi, D. D. 2003-06-25. Assessing the eddy covariance technique for evaluating carbon dioxide exchange rates of ecosystems: past, present and future. Global Change Biology, 9: 479-492.

    Instrumentation
    Flux tower and a listing of additional instrumentation can be found at http://www.people.virginia.edu/%7Ejf6s/pace/VFRFInstruments.html.

    Quality Control
    Dataset is inspected by PI for QA/QC; standard validation checks for negative numbers, graphs to detect potential outliers .
