Monitoring Sites - Yarramundi

The Yarramundi site hosts two flux towers on the Western Sydney University Hawkesbury campus. Original woodland vegetation was cleared prior to 1950. A mixture of native and exotic grasses and forbs dominate the sites.

The control site, Yarramundi Control, is an unimproved pasture site used by kangaroos and occasionally for cattle. And the irrigated site, Yarramundi Irrigated, is an improved, managed pasture used by cattle in an intensively managed grazing operation.

The two flux towers were established in October of 2019 and are managed by the Hawkesbury Institute for the Environment external link, Western Sydney University external linkwith partial support from TERN and WSU Office of Estate and Commercial (Farm Production Unit).
