Description
Understanding the exchange of energy and gases between the earth's surface and the lower atmosphere is essential for answering many questions related to, e.g., the global carbon budget, ecosystem functioning, air pollution mitigation, greenhouse gas emissions, weather forecasting, and projections of climate change. However, uncertainties in carbon dioxide (CO2) and water vapour (H2O) budgets limit our ability to reproduce and project these exchange processes. Exchange processes are usually analysed based on micrometeorological measurements from tall flux towers, thought to be representative of large area averages. A limitation of this approach is that the actual...
