Site Description

The Boyagin Wandoo Woodland flux station is located in the wheatbelt of Western Australia about 200km southeast from Perth, Western Australia (GPS coordinates: -32.477093, 116.938559; elevation 484m).

The flux tower site is located within an area of wandoo woodland. The surrounding area is dominated by broadacre farming practices. Elevation of the site is close to 484m and mean annual precipitation at a nearby Bureau of Meteorology site at Pingelly measures 446mm.

Maximum temperatures range from 15.3°C (in July) to 31.9°C (in Jan), while minimum temperatures range from 5.5°C (in July) to 15.5°C (in Jan).

The instrument mast is 4 meters tall. Heat, water vapour, and carbon dioxide measurements are taken using the open-path eddy flux technique. Temperature, humidity, wind speed, wind direction, rainfall and net radiation are measured. Soil heat fluxes are measured and soil moisture content are collected.
