The landscape of central Amazonia is composed of plateaus and valleys. Previous observations have shown preferential pooling of CO2 in the valleys, suggesting that the change in CO2 storage in the canopy air space (S) will be spatially variable at the scale of the topography. This may affect the interpretation of the net ecosystem CO2 exchange (NEE) rates measured on the plateaus if they have used one single atmospheric CO2 concentration ([CO2]) vertical profile measurement system. We have… CONTINUE READING
