FLUXNET is a global network of micrometeorological flux measurement sites that measure the exchanges of carbon dioxide, water vapor, and energy between the biosphere and atmosphere. At present over 140 sites are operating on a long-term and continuous basis. Vegetation under study includes temperate conifer and broadleaved (deciduous and evergreen) forests, tropical and boreal forests, crops, grasslands, chaparral, wetlands, and tundra. Sites exist on five continents and their latitudinal… 

Assessing Net Ecosystem Exchange of Carbon Dioxide Between the Terrestrial Biosphere and the Atmosphere Using Fluxnet Observations and Remote Sensing

The quantification of net ecosystem exchange (NEE) of carbon dioxide over regions, continents, or the globe is essential for understanding the feedbacks between the terrestrial biosphere and the

By using the upscaling approach predictors are directly linked with target fluxes through machine learning, while the intermediate variables along with intrinsic mechanisms are hidden.

Fluxes of energy, water, and carbon dioxide from mountain ecosystems at Niwot Ridge, Colorado

Background: The eddy covariance (EC) technique provides a direct measure of water vapour and carbon dioxide fluxes between ecosystems and the atmosphere. Aims: This review article highlights the

The increasing amount of measurement data on land - atmosphere flux has made it possible to assess the interannual and longer processes that are driven by environmental change and disturbance of

The ABCflux database: Arctic-Boreal CO2 flux observations and ancillary information aggregated to monthly time steps across terrestrial ecosystems

Abstract. Past efforts to synthesize and quantify the magnitude and change in carbon dioxide (CO2) fluxes in terrestrial ecosystems across the rapidly warming Arctic-Boreal Zone (ABZ) have provided

FLUXNET. Database of fluxes, site characteristics, and flux-community information

FLUXNET is a “network of regional networks” created by international scientists to coordinate regional and global analysis of observations from micrometeorological tower sites. The flux tower sites

Recent progress and future directions of ChinaFLUX

The eddy covariance technique has emerged as an important tool to directly measure carbon dioxide, water vapor and heat fluxes between the terrestrial ecosystem and the atmosphere after a long



Strategies for measuring and modelling carbon dioxide and water vapour fluxes over terrestrial ecosystems

Continuous and direct measurements of ecosystem carbon dioxide and water vapour fluxes can improve our ability to close regional and global carbon and hydrological budgets. On this behalf, an

Simulations of terrestrial carbon metabolism and atmospheric CO2 in a general circulation model: Part 1: Surface carbon fluxes

The exchange of carbon dioxide (CO 2 ) between the atmosphere and terrestrial ecosystems due to photosynthesis and respiration has been simulated using a new version of the simple biosphere model

On Measuring Net Ecosystem Carbon Exchange Over Tall Vegetation on Complex Terrain

To assess annual budgets of CO2 exchange betweenthe biosphere and atmosphere over representativeecosystems, long-term measurements must be made overecosystems that do not exist on ideal terrain. How

Seasonal patterns and environmental control of carbon dioxide and water vapour exchange in an ecotonal boreal forest

Carbon dioxide, water vapour, and sensible heat fluxes were measured above and within a spruce dominated forest near the southern ecotone of the boreal forest in Maine, USA. Summer, mid‐day carbon

Responses of net ecosystem exchanges of carbon dioxide to changes in cloudiness: Results from two North American deciduous forests

We analyzed half-hourly tower-based flux measurements of carbon dioxide (CO 2 ) from a boreal aspen forest and a temperate mixed deciduous forest in Canada to examine the influences of clouds on
