A DOE sponsored workshop was held August 27 - 30, 2002 at Oregon State University, Corvallis, Oregon. It was the second of the international AmeriFlux workshops intended to outline and recommend scientifically preferred procedures for calculating and 'correcting' eddy covariance fluxes for all AmeriFlux sites. The fundamental goals of these workshops are (1) to reduce or eliminate, as much as possible, uncertainties in cross-site comparisons of fluxes resulting from different methods of signal processing, high and low frequency spectral corrections, coordinate systems, data detrending, post-processing QA/QC, etc. and (2) to highlight and explore emerging issues, such as, the influence advection and complex terrain can have on measured fluxes and the types, nature, and influence nighttime or stable atmospheric motions can have on measured fluxes.

Keywords: AmeriFlux sites, eddy covariance fluxes
