Climate Tower Network

Forest Service researchers have access to a series of flux towers throughout the country that enables them to study carbon cycling of forests and rangelands. Data from flux sites help test physiological models of carbon exchange and are critical to relating fluxes and remote sensing data. Companion physiological and ecological measurements enable partitioning carbon fluxes into plant and soil components and reveal mechanisms responsible for these fluxes.
