The Southern Old Jack Pine site contained a large scaffold-style flux tower, linked by cables to a thinner truss tower 100 meters away. There was an under-canopy radiation sensor mounted on a movable cart on a track running under the trees. There was also a large canopy access tower to allow scientists to get direct acess to the canopy for experiments. View an aerial photo-map of the SSA-OJP site.

This is a 14 meter-long metal track in the forest
with a mobile radiometer out on an arm on a small
motorized cart (visible at the center of the picture)
that travels through the forest taking measurements
of PAR and net radiation.
