Radiation Data collected at the Eddy Covariance Towers

Data in the KBS LTER core database may not be published without written permission of the lead investigator or project director Full terms of use

This datatable is part of the KBS GLBRC CO2 Net Ecosystem Exchange using Eddy Covariance method dataset. The eddy covariance tower method is used to make continuous measurements of the carbon dioxide net ecosystem exchange (NEE). There are 7 towers on KBS GLBRC scale-up fields; 3 at Lux Arbor Reserve and 4 at the the Marshall Farms fields.
