Eddy covariance data at urban areas in Sakai

* Meteorological and flux data measured at Sakai city area
* by Dr. M. Ueyama (Osaka Prefecture University).
* 2017.03.06


For understanding greenhouse gases, heat, and energy exchange in urban area, we have conducted continuous observations using the eddy covariance technique in three urban locations (the dense urban built-up, sub-urban, and urban park) in Sakai, Osaka, Japan.

Study sites and period

SAC (34o34’25’’N, 135o28’59’’E) : dense urban built-up (2009.11 – now)

IZM (34o33’48’’N, 135o22’01’’E) : urban park (2015.02-2016.01)

OPU (34o32’50’’N, 135o30’10’’E) : suburban area (2014.12 – now for the eddy covariance; 2008 – now for meteorology)
