This data set contains eddy-correlation flux measurements of sensible heat, latent heat, CO2, and momentum fluxes, with micrometeorological measurements of air temperature, wind speed and direction, and measurements of total solar and net radiation, and photosynthetic photon flux density.
Measurement site locations and several physical and biophysical characteristics are provided in a companion file Alaska_Kuparuk_sites.dat (ftp://daac.ornl.gov/data/fluxnet/Arctic_Flux/comp/Alaska_Kuparuk_sites.dat). Descriptions of the site data file format and images of the site locations in the Kuparuk River Basin are provided in a separate companion file Alaska_Kuparuk_sites.pdf (ftp://daac.ornl.gov/data/fluxnet/Arctic_Flux/comp/Alaska_Kuparuk_sites.pdf).
