Results of an experiment conducted to quantify the ozone deposition onto a deciduous forest stand in an acid-precipitation-impacted area of Canada are presented and discussed. The ozone deposition data were obtained above and within the forest canopy. The deposition process was affected by solar radiation, wind speed and ambient ozone concentration. Solar radiation was likely… More

Measurements of isoprene concentration and flux were made at a mixed deciduous forest in southern Canada during 1995 to characterize diel and seasonal emissions and thus deduce annual inventories. Isoprene inventories are necessary for inputs to modeling systems to study atmospheric chemistry and carbon budgets. Despite adequate environmental conditions to promote emissions, the onset of… More

The objectives of this study are to establish a climatology of gravity waves in a forest and to gain insights into the dynamics of this motion type. The site is part of the BOREAS (Boreal Ecosystem—Atmosphere Study) flux monitoring network. The analysis relies mainly on 5 Hz temperature time series observed with two arrays of… More

A one-dimensional canopy model was developed to study photochemical processes inside and above a mixed deciduous forest in southern Ontario. The Eulerian model made use of Lagrangian dispersion principles with a correction factor to incorporate the average ensemble time since emission to calculate atmospheric mixing; traditional diffusion methods were found to provide insufficient mixing to… More

The Biogenic Emission Inventory System (BEIS) used by the United States Environmental Protection Agency (Lamb et al., 1993, Atmospheric Environment21, 1695–1705; Pierce and Waldruff, 1991, J. Air Waste Man. Ass.41, 937–941) was tested for its ability to provide realistic microclimate descriptions within a deciduous forest in Canada. The microclimate description within plant canopies is required… More

Boreal and temperate deciduous forests at northern mid-latitudes play an important role in the global carbon cycle. We analyze 3 years (1996-1998) of eddy-covariance carbon dioxide flux measurements from two contrasting deciduous forest ecosystems in the boreal and temperate regions of central Canada. The two forest stands have similar ages, heights, and leaf area indices… More

We analyzed half-hourly tower-based flux measurements of carbon dioxide (CO2) from a boreal aspen forest and a temperate mixed deciduous forest in Canada to examine the influences of clouds on forest carbon uptake. We showed that the presence of clouds consistently and significantly increased the net ecosystem exchanges (NEE) of CO2 of both forests from… More

This paper reports the results of the analysis of eddy covariance CO2 data obtained at a successional forest of maple and aspen at Camp Borden in southern Ontario, Canada, between July 1995 and December 1997. Main findings are (1) The Michaelis-Menton model explains >50–65% of the observed variance of the daytime net ecosystem carbon exchange… More
