Purpose

The purpose of the Calperum flux station is:

  • To measure the energy, CO2 and H2O balance of mallee shrub land for short term (days) and long term (years)

  • Link vegetation and ecosystem response to soil, atmosphere and local management conditions to explain daily and seasonal variation in exchange processes

  • Use the site data to broaden environmental monitoring data for Ozflux and climate interpretation at the continental scale

  • Use the measured data to develop and test predictive models of vegetation and related ecosystems that can be used to improve restorative actions in conservation of this type of ecosystem.
