Purpose

The purpose of the Oxford site is:

  • to quantify energy, carbon and water fluxes for native vegetation regenerating in grassland

  • to study the regulation of carbon storage during the transition from pasture to regenerating forest

  • to quantify the rates of carbon storage and fluxes between a grazed pasture and a fellow grassland

  • to measure the effects of grazing, pasture and revegetation on surface albedo

  • to utilize the physiological and environmental parameters to determine the effects of removal of grazing on grass growth and light use efficiency.
