Networking Activities 5 (NA5)

The objectives of NA5 are:

To compare and document differences in flux calculations accross the flux measurement network. The proposed Networking Activity consists of an in depth intercomparison of algorithms and software used by the flux towers to calculate energy, water and carbon fluxes by eddy covariance measurements. Although the eddy covariance technique is widely used by the micrometeorologists, the calculation algoritms are rather different accross different groups. This provides an uncertainty when comparing regional flux estimates from these measurements. The IMECC project will document this uncertainty and provide platform for improved standardization

Results form NA5 are expected to clarify the uncertainties associated with the use of different algorithms and software in eddy covariance calculation in order to provide a basis for interpreting variations accross flux sites
