Overview

In order to understand long-term variabilities in carbon and water exchanges in sub-arctic forests under changing climate, carbon, water, and energy fluxes have been measured by the eddy covariance method from October 2002. Other micrometeorological and soil environmental data has also been continuously measured. This dataset provides the flux and environmental data from 2003 to 2011. Details, such as the measurements, data processing, and site descriptions, were documented in papers listed below. This project was supported by NSF, IARC-JAXA Information system, and KAKENHI.
