Location: Cropping Systems and Water Quality Research
Project Number: 5070-12000-001-009-S
Project Type: Non-Assistance Cooperative Agreement
Start Date: Jul 18, 2022
End Date: Jul 17, 2023
Conduct cooperative research to quantify water and energy fluxes from three contrasting agroecosystems in Central Missouri.
Water and energy fluxes will be measured using existing eddy covariance flux towers at three field sites. Instrumentation maintenance, calibration, and data collection will continue throughout the project. Data will be processed using established procedures and standard data products will be developed for analysis. Differences between sites and over time will be interpreted with respect to field conditions and environmental variables, including those collected from weather stations maintained in the project. The cooperator will participate in all phases of the project and will lead instrumentation maintenance, calibration and data collection.
