Flux and Meteorological Data

Submitted by ORNL DAAC Staff on

The ORNL DAAC announces the first release of data from the FLUXNET project. Flux and meteorology data are available for 11 research sites in Europe and the United States, with an average of two years of data per site.

The data have been quality assured, documented, and integrated into uniform data sets. Measurements were recorded usually on a half-hour basis. Missing values were obtained by means of common algorithms. The half-hourly values were then aggregated to produce daily, weekly, monthly, and annual sums.

To obtain FLUXNET data, visit the FLUXNETdata access page.

FLUXNET is an international effort to provide consistent, integrated measurements of carbon dioxide, water vapor, and energy fluxes, as well as characteristics of vegetation, soil, hydrology, and meteorology that are associated with the fluxes. Data are collected from regional networks and independent sites around the world.
