Abstract Systematic bias in eddy-covariance flux measurements are pervasive. These arise both from unmeasured terms such as advection, and sampling bias in representativeness of the footprint for both turbulent and storage fluxes. As a result, the majority of eddy-covariance towers suffer from unaccounted bias when comparing to gridded earth system models and fail to close the surface energy balance. We hypothesize that one cause for these two problems is a mismatch between mass and energy… CONTINUE READING
