Monitoring Sites - Ridgefield

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


The purpose of the Ridgefield Flux Station is to:

  • Monitor and determine the balance of environmental demands for water yields, agricultural productivity, GHG budgets and biodiversity within a catchment landscape.

  • Provide information to establish a modelling tool for GHG and water fluxes across various land use types, in order to benefit land management practices in the wheatbelt of Western Australia.

The tower is a crucial component of the UWA critical zone observatory which will be the site of a multidisciplinary approach to understanding the landscape dynamics.
