An Evaluation Of Calibration Techniques For In Situ Carbon Dioxide Measurements Using A Programmable Portable Trace-Gas Measuring System
Burns, S. P., Delany, A. C., Sun, J., Stephens, B. B., Oncley, S. P., Maclean, G. D., Semmer, S. R., Schröter, J., Ruppert, J.

The construction and deployment of a portable trace-gas measurement system (TGaMS) is described. The air-collection system (dubbed HYDRA) collects air samples from 18 different locations and was connected to either one or two LI-COR LI-7000 gas analyzers to measure CO2. An in situ “field calibration” method, that uses four calibration …

Physiological Responses Of Red Mangroves To The Climate In The Florida Everglades
Barr, J. G., Fuentes, J. D., Engel, V., Zieman, J. C.

This manuscript reports the findings of physiological studies of red mangrove (Rhizophora mangle L.) conducted from June to August 2001 and from May to June 2003 in the Florida Everglades. In situ physiological measurements were made using environmentally controlled gas exchange systems. The field investigations were carried …

Contrasting Carbon Dioxide Fluxes Between A Drying Shrub Wetland In Northern Wisconsin, USA, And Nearby Forests
Sulman, B.N.,  Desai, A.R., Cook, B.D., Saliendra, N., Mackay, D.S.

Wetland biogeochemistry is strongly influenced by water and temperature dynamics, and these interactions are currently poorly represented in ecosystem and climate models. A decline in water table of approximately 30 cm was observed at a wetland in Northern Wisconsin, USA over a period from 2001–2007, which was highly correlated …

Measuring Boreal Forest Evapotranspiration Using The Energy Balance Residual
Amiro, B.

The eddy covariance technique is the most common method of measuring forest evapotranspiration directly. Evapotranspiration can also be estimated by solving for the residual of the energy balance measurements of net radiation, sensible heat flux density and ground heat flux density. However, the lack of energy balance closure of …

Impact Of Reduced Tillage And Cover Cropping On The Greenhouse Gas Budget Of A Maize/Soybean Rotation Ecosystem
Bavin, T., Griffis, T., Baker, J., Venterea, R.

Agricultural ecosystems have been viewed with the potential to sequester atmospheric carbon dioxide (CO2) by increasing soil organic carbon (SOC) through reduced tillage and cover cropping practices. There remains considerable uncertainty, however, regarding the …

Turbulence considerations for comparing ecosystem exchange over old-growth and clear-cut stands for limited fetch and complex canopy flow conditions
Wharton, S., Schroeder, M., Paw U, K.T., Falk, M., Bible, K.

Carbon dioxide, water vapor, and energy fluxes were measured using eddy covariance (EC) methodology over three adjacent evergreen forests in southern Washington State to identify stand-level age-effects on ecosystem exchange. The sites represent Douglas-fir forest ecosystems at two contrasting successional stages: old-growth (OG) …

Comparison Of Carbon Dynamics And Water Use Efficiency Following Fire And Harvesting In Canadian Boreal Forests
Mkhabela, M., Amiro, B., Barr, A., Black, T., Hawthorne, I., Kidston, J., McCaughey, J., Orchansky, A., Nesic, Z., Sass, A., Shashkov, A., Zha, T.

Fire and harvesting are major forest renewal processes in the Canadian boreal forest. The eddy covariance method was used to compare ecosystem fluxes of carbon dioxide between harvested and burned boreal forest sites in Saskatchewan, Canada. The harvest chronosequence had …

Soil Evaporation Response To Lehmann Lovegrass (Eragrostis Lehmanniana) Invasion In A Semiarid Watershed
Moran, M. S., Scott, R. L., Hamerlynck, E. P., Green, K. N., Emmerich, W. E., Holifield Collins, C. D.

Across the western United States, warm-season grasslands are being invaded by the exotic perennial grass, Eragrostis lehmanniana (Lehmann lovegrass). The objective of this study was to quantify the change in surface water balance, particularly the evaporation from bare soil, associated with E. lehmanniana invasion. …

Partitioning Evapotranspiration In Semiarid Grassland And Shrubland Ecosystems Using Time Series Of Soil Surface Temperature
Moran, M., Scott, R., Keefer, T., Emmerich, W., Hernandez, M., Nearing, G., Paige, G., Cosh, M., O’Neill, P.

Information about the ratio of transpiration (T) to total evapotranspiration (T/ET) is related to critical global change concerns, including shrub encroachment and non-native species invasion. In this study, a new approach was developed to partition measurements …

Strong links between teleconnections and ecosystem exchange found at a Pacific Northwest old-growth forest from flux tower and MODIS EVI data
Wharton, S., Chasmer, L., Falk, M., Paw U, K.T.

Variability in three Pacific teleconnection patterns are examined to see if net carbon exchange at a low-elevation, old-growth forest is affected by climatic changes associated with these periodicities. Examined are the Pacific Decadal Oscillation (PDO), Pacific/North American Oscillation (PNA) and El Niño-Southern Oscillation …
