Purpose

The purpose of the Gingin flux station is:

  • To quantify recharge to Gnangara groundwater mound, Perth’s most important water resource

  • Monitor ecophysiological responses to long-term variation in climate and water table drawdown

  • To quantify landscape-scale exchange of carbon dioxide, water vapour and energy in a coastal heath environment

  • To further understand groundwater recharge under changing climate

  • To provide ecophysiological and micrometeorological data representative of an important biome within Australia subject to drying climate, falling watertables, fire and encroachment of feral species

  • To provide enhanced datasets of landscape-scale exchange of carbon dioxide, water vapour and energy along with ecophysiological characteristics and drivers in a semi-arid temperate ecosystems in Australia.
