Purpose

The purpose of the Cow Bay flux station is:

  • to measure exchanges of carbon dioxide, water vapour and energy between the tropical lowland rainforest in Far North Queensland and the atmosphere using micrometeorological techniques

  • to quantify the changes in carbon and water balances of an Australian tropical rainforest on a long term basis in the face of climate change

  • to present the results from the study in real time to the public and inform the public on what these results mean

This work is part of an collaborative study between JCU and the Daintree Discovery Centre.
