Project Overview

Field test results of a tunable diode laser-based eddy covariance flux sensor which can monitor several species including CO2 and H2O simultaneously. Other sensors utilized include a sonic anemometer and a precision barometer.


1. Evaluate the performance of a newly developed sensor prototype capable of measuring carbon dioxide and water exchange between the surface and the atmosphere. 2. Evaluate the Net Ecosystem Productivity of the hardwood stand within the VMC forest canopy tower. 3. Compare sensor suite with in situ nondispersive infrared CO2 and H2O sensor.
