Measurements of CO2 and acetone fluxes have been made over a large-scale, naturally occurring high latitude phytoplankton bloom in the remote South Atlantic. Shipborne micrometeorological methods for direct atmospheric flux measurement have been applied to determine the direction and size of the CO2 and acetone fluxes. Previous results suggest that high(More)
Proximal sensing is fundamental to monitor the spatial and seasonal dynamics of ecosystems and can be considered as a crucial validation tool to upscale in situ observations to the satellite level. Linking hyperspectral remote sensing with carbon fluxes and biophysical parameters is critical to allow the exploitation of spatial and temporal extensive(More)
Observation and characterization of environmental pollution, focussing on Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs), in a high-risk industrial area, are particularly important in order to provide indications on a safe level of exposure, indicate eventual priorities and advise on policy interventions. The aim of this study is to use the Solid Phase Micro Extraction(More)
Long-term fluxes of CO(2), and combined short-term fluxes of CH(4) and CO(2) were measured with the eddy covariance technique in the city centre of Florence. CO(2) long-term weekly fluxes exhibit a high seasonality, ranging from 39 to 172% of the mean annual value in summer and winter respectively, while CH(4) fluxes are relevant and don't exhibit temporal(More)
The importance of road traffic, residential heating and meteorological conditions as major drivers of urban PM10 concentrations during air pollution critical episodes has been assessed in the city of Florence (Italy) during the winter season. The most significant meteorological variables (wind speed and atmospheric stability) explained 80.5-85.5% of PM10(More)
Keywords: Olive Eddy covariance C-Fix MODIS NDVI GPP a b s t r a c t We developed and tested a methodology to estimate olive (Olea europaea L.) gross primary production (GPP) combining ground and multi-sensor satellite data. An eddy-covariance station placed in an olive grove in central Italy provided carbon and water fluxes over two years (2010–2011),(More)
