Deposition of ozone to a mature spruce forest: measurements and comparison to models.

Abstract

Removal of ozone at terrestrial surfaces provides a major sink for tropospheric ozone and, therefore, a constraint on the peak concentrations achieved during photochemical episodes. This study reports results from 5 years of almost continuous measurements of vertical profiles of ozone and related meteorological variables over a mature spruce forest in Bavaria. Deposition velocities calculated from flux/gradient and eddy correlation flux measurements have been compared with estimates based on a resistance model and yield satisfactory agreement during fine weather conditions. The results also suggest that biogenic emissions of reactive hydrocarbons from the forest influence the vertical profile of ozone.
