Estimating Landscape-level Carbon Fluxes from Tower CO2 Mixing Ratio Measurement
Date: Wednesday, September 28 @ 11:15:00 MDT

by Jing Chen

Variations of the CO2 mixing ratio in the atmosphere near the surface result from several processes, including photosynthesis and respiration of the underlying ecosystems, vertical mixing near the surface and in the planetary boundary layer (PBL), and entrainment of air above the PBL. We developed a novel approach for isolating ecosystem metabolism signals at the landscape scale (102-104 km2) in an hourly CO2 record using a vertical diffusion scheme coupled with an ecosystem model.
