Purpose

The purpose of the Ti Tree flux station is:

  • to measure the exchanges of carbon dioxide, water vapour and energy in a semi-arid ecosystem with potential access to groundwater

  • to identify flux footprints associated with contributions by mulga versus Corymbia savannas

  • to compare water use efficiency, GPP and ecosystem respiration between adjacent semi-arid ecosystems (Alice Springs mulga)

  • to identify relationships between groundwater, soil moisture, rainfall and evapotranspiration

  • to identify phenological trends and to relate phenology to flux footprints and remote sensing of water and carbon fluxes.
