Data Extent

Eddy Covariance Data from Office of Naval Research Biofuel project on Maui

Eddy Covariance tower establishment in Maui

These data come from three eddy covariance (EC) towers that were installed as part of a project to assess the productivity of sugarcane agricultural systems for biofuel production. These towers were operated from 2011-2013 in Maui, USA. Major observational parameters include net carbon exchange, evapotranspiration, and energy fluxes.
