Interpretive Summary: The Southwestern ECohydrology Array (SECA) is a multi-user network that serves to assess biosphere / atmospheric exchange processes, as well as surface hydrology in semiarid ecosystems. SECA is administered through the USDA-ARS Southwest Watershed Research Center and the University of Arizona’s B2 Earthscience. The components of the array were constructed with funds from the USDA-ARS, University of Arizona, and the NSF-Science & Technology Center SAHRA. This article reviews our work conducted over the last 10 years on water vapor and carbon dioxide flux monitoring in southern Arizona. We review our approaches and some of the important results that this effort has generated.
