Carbon Flux#

Carbon Monitoring Project#

FluxNet is a worldwide collection of sensor stations that record a number of local variables relating to atmospheric conditions, solar flux and soil moisture. This notebook visualizes the data used in the NASA Goddard/University of Alabama carbon monitoring project NEE Data Fusion (Grey Nearing et al., 2018), but using Python tools rather than Matlab.

The scientific goals of this notebook are to:

  • examine the carbon flux measurements from each site (net C02 ecosystem exchange, or NEE)

  • determine the feasibility of using a model to predict the carbon flux at one site from every other site.

  • generate and explain model

The “meta” goal is to show how Python tools let you solve the scientific goals, so that you can apply these tools to your own problems.
