Monitoring Sites - Alpine Peatland

Introduction | Contacts | Purpose | Site Description | Measurements | DEM | Pictures


The purpose of the Alpine Peatland flux station is:

  • to directly measure evapotranspiration, supporting detailed long term hydrological measurements that are ongoing at this site (Karis et al., 2016; Silvester, 2006; Silvester, 2009).

  • to investigate carbon and energy fluxes

  • to add to the range of ecosystems encompassed by the OzFlux network as there has been previously little coverage of alpine, snow-covered landscapes or wetlands.
