FLUXNET, a "network of regional networks," coordinates regional and global analysis of observations from micrometeorological tower sites. The flux tower sites use eddy covariance methods to measure the exchanges of carbon dioxide (CO2), water vapor, and energy between terrestrial ecosystems and the atmosphere.

The FLUXNET database contains information about tower location and site characteristics as well as data availability. You can also view the availability of data.

The site characteristics and ancillary database may be queried by site.

A new Synthesis Activity has been initiated, building on the La Thule 2007 Synthesis.
To submit a Proposal for a Paper, contact the Synthesis Committee.

FLUXNET Announcements

In this issue of the FLUXLETTER, we present two historical accounts; one is a history of flux measurements using the eddy covariance method. The second is a history of the development of flux measurements specific to urban ecosystems. We also profile the Yatir Forest in Israel; a pine forest established at the semi-arid dry timberline. Lastly, Dennis Baldocchi offers a tribute to Shashi Verma; a pioneer in the flux community who has recently retired.
