  • AmeriFlux
  • The AmeriFlux network, established in 1996, provides continuous observations of ecosystem level exchanges of C02, water, energy and momentum spanning diurnal, synoptic, seasonal, and interannual time scales.

  • A global network of micrometeorological tower sites that use eddy covariance methods to measure the exchanges of carbon dioxide (CO2), water vapor, and energy between terrestrial ecosystem and atmosphere. At present, over 200 tower sites are operating on a long-term and continuous basis. Researchers also collect data on site vegetation, soil, hydrologic, and meteorological characteristics at the tower sites.

  • North American Carbon Program (NACP)
  • Measuring and understanding the sources and sinks of carbon dioxide, methane, and carbon monoxide in North America and in adjacent ocean regions.

  • BigFoot
  • Linking In Situ Measurements, Remote Sensing, and Models to Validate MODIS Products Related to the Terrestrial Carbon Cycle.

  • Laboratory for Applications of Remote Sensing in Ecology.
