FLUXNET is a global network of micrometeorological tower sites that use eddy covariance methods to measure the exchanges of carbon dioxide, water vapor, and energy between terrestrial ecosystems and the atmosphere. This dataset provides information from the ORNL DAAC-hosted FLUXNET site database which was discontinued in 2016. The files provided contain a list of investigators associated with each tower site, site locations and environmental data, and a bibliography of papers that used FLUXNET data. For more up to date information on FLUXNET sites, see
