Purpose

The purpose of the Warra flux site is:

  • to study the ecophysiological processes and rates of C accumulation and decomposition in a mixed-aged, tall, wet Eucalyptus obliqua forest originating from past natual wildfires

  • to measure the exchanges of carbon dioxide, water vapour and energy between the forest and the atmosphere using micrometeorological techniques

  • to link ecophysiological processes and rates of C accumulations and decomposition with the biota.

  • to utilize the measurements in combination with remote sensing data and land surface models to upscale estimate the net exchanges of carbon and water at regional scale.
