Purpose

The purpose of the Robson Creek flux station is:

  • to measure exchanges of carbon dioxide, water vapour and energy between the tropical upland 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 a collaborative study between JCU and a number of other institutions at the Robson Creek node of the FNQ Rainforest Supersite (CSIRO, ANU, Griffith, La Trobe, UQ).
