OzFlux is an international network of flux sites in Australia and New Zealand. In Australia, OzFlux is a facility of the Terrestrial Ecosystem Research Network (TERN), funded in part under the National Collaborative Research Infrastructure Strategy (NCRIS).
The Australian Ozflux network is administered by a team of researchers in CSIRO Land and Water and the wider OzFlux Central Node. This team determines protocols for measurements, data processing and quality control, provides a database to archive data from each site and provides training to site operators as required. The OzFlux Central Node manages the data and the data portal web site .
The Facility Director is Dr. Suzanne Prober (CSIRO Land and Water), the Scientific Director is Dr. James Cleverly (University of Technology Sydney), and the Data Manager is Dr. Peter Isaac.
A Steering Committee chaired by Dr Helen Cleugh (CSIRO Oceans & Atmosphere) provides scientific leadership for the network and coordinates logistics as required.
The Ozflux data files on this website are freely available and are furnished for use by the research community. Please kindly inform the site investigators of how you are using the data and of any publication plans.
If the principle investigator (PI) or members of their team feel that they should be acknowledged or offered participation as authors, they will let you know and we assume that an agreement on such matters will be reached before publication.
If your work directly competes with that of the PI's investigation team they may ask that they have the opportunity to submit a manuscript before you submit one that uses unpublished (preliminary) data.
Please acknowledge the data source (either the PI or the Ozflux Web Site) as a citation or in the acknowledgments if the data are not yet published.
In addition, when publishing, please acknowledge the agency that supported the flux tower research.
Lastly, we kindly request that those publishing papers using this Ozflux data please provide preprints to the scientists providing the data.
If you have any questions, please contact Dr Suzanne Prober (ph: +61 8 9333 6789).
