AmeriFlux Management Project

AmeriFlux is a network of more than 400 sites in the Western Hemisphere and thousands of scientists that measure and research ecosystem carbon, water and energy fluxes. The largest flows of carbon between the land and atmosphere are from terrestrial ecosystem photosynthesis and respiration, and have profound impacts on climate and atmospheric composition.
