Actual evapotranspiration (ET) is a major component of the water balance. While several international flux measurement programs have been executed in the tropical rain forest of the Amazon, those measurements represent the evaporative process at a few selected sites only. The aim of this study is to obtain the spatial distribution of ET, using remote… More

Aerodynamic canopy height (ha) is the effective height of vegetation canopy for its influence on atmospheric fluxes and is a key parameter of surface‐atmosphere coupling. However, methods to estimate ha from data are limited. This synthesis evaluates the applicability and robustness of the calculation of ha from eddy covariance momentum‐flux data. At 69 forest sites,… More

I am pleased to announce the AmeriFlux 20th Anniversary Special Issue in the journal Agricultural and Forest Meteorology. Manuscripts are solicited from across the broad spectrum of research using flux data or flux sites. We are particularly interested in studies that examine linkages among ecosystem processes and the environment, test innovative observational and analytical approaches, or… More
