AmeriFlux ecosystem observation datasets - Walnut Gulch Experimental Watershed - Kendall Grasslands

posted on 2023-11-30, 08:41 authored by Russell Scott

Energy and CO2 Fluxes have been monitored from 1997 to 2007 using Bowen Ratio technique, and since spring of 2004 with eddy covariance. This is located in a small intensively-studied, experimental watershed within USDA-ARS's Walnut Gulch Experimental Watershed.

Intended use

AmeriFlux Community Goals Quantify the magnitude of the carbon sources and sinks for a range of terrestrial ecosystems in the Americas, and how they may be influenced by disturbance, management regimes, climate variability, nutrients, and atmospheric pollutants; Advance understanding of processes regulating carbon assimilation, respiration, and storage; Collect critical new information to help define the current global CO2 budget; Enable improved predictions of future concentrations of atmospheric CO2

Use limitations

Information displayed has been gathered from global maps, regional network websites, and personal communication with investigators. If you have found an error, please send us an email by visiting with a description of the error. Missing data must be reported using -9999 as replacing value. Floating point representations using -9999.x with x equal to one or more 0 or 9 will be considered equivalent to -9999 (e.g. -9999.0 or -9999.999). Other values such as -6999 are not acceptable as indication of missing value (for any reason).
