This year’s Ameriflux Annual Meeting began with something different. The Early Career Network (FLUXNET-ECN, previously FLUXNET-YSN) kicked off the meeting a day early with hands-on workshops. Roughly 40 participants joined us in Boulder, CO, and ~15 joined remotely for a full afternoon of programming. In the first session, Manuel Helbig introduced AmeriFlux’s renewed focus on… More

By Ladislav Šigut, Postdoc, Department of Matter and Energy Fluxes, Global Change Research Institute CAS, Czechia In this blog, we introduce several publicly available software/packages that the flux scientists/engineers have developed (or are developing) for data acquisition/processing/QAQC/manipulation. The list is intended for information sharing and may not be comprehensive. We welcome any feedback or comment… More

June 9, 2017 We just concluded the 2017 Fluxnet workshop.  About 114 scientists from across the globe converged in Berkeley, June 7-9, to discuss long term carbon and water flux measurements, data processing, flux interpretation, the new FLUXNET 2015 dataset and directions for the future. The meeting was divided into overviews of the regional networks,… More

FLUXNET2015 — a new data set to keep a sharper eye on land-air exchanges. The latest update of the longest global record of ecosystem carbon, water, and energy fluxes, features improved data quality, new data products, and more open data sharing policies……. (see link for the story) Twitchell Island (US-Twt) in the Sacramento–San Joaquin River Delta, California provides… More
