MMSF Ameriflux Tower

The Morgan-Monroe Forest (MMSF) Ameriflux tower became operational in February 1998 and stands at 48 meters tall.  The site is part of the AmeriFlux and FLUXNET networks of sites and regularly contributes data to both AmeriFlux and FLUXNET databases. The MMSF AmeriFlux project is a joint assessment of the role of forest ecosystems asnet carbon sinks by micrometeorological (eddy-flux, EC) and biometric (carbon-pool increments) methods. This data, and the published analyses derived from it, are increasingly used by network-wide synthesis activities to assess, model, and/or up-scale biosphere-atmosphere exchange of carbon on regional to global scales. The research has been supported by the U.S. Department of Energy (USDOE). For more details about the MMSF AmeriFlux tower and site click here.
