A new version of the REddyProc eddy covariance data processing R package is available. See the announcement email from the REddyProc team below.
we are pleased to announce the release of the new version of REddyProc R
package with the implementation of the u* filtering similar to one of
the routines applied by the European Cluster Database and Ameriflux.
The new version of REddyProc is available through R-Forge and allows
the user to run the u* filtering based on Papale et al 2006 (and further
modifications), and gap-filling and flux partitioning of eddy covariance
flux data based on Reichstein et al., 2005.
Although slightly different in some routines and features, the package
mimics the online tool that has been extensively used by many users and
PIs in the last years, and available on the website of the Max Planck
Institute for Biogeochemistry.
The reason to convert and release the code of the online tool in an open
source environment (specifically R) is to allow the community and site
PIs to run u*, gap-filling and partitioning within automatic procedures,
to have the possibility to run the tool without any internet connection,
and, last but not least, the open source code allows methodological
developments and inter comparison between methods by the researchers
interested in gap-filling and partitioning tools. This complements
activities by AmeriFlux, ICOS and other regional networks for developing
codes for standardized data processing of multiple sites in FLUXNET.
Information on the package including download, installation, and usage
is provided at:
For most users (with the most recent version of R) the following simple
command from R will be sufficient:
install.packages("REddyProc", repos=c("http://R-Forge.R-project.org","@[email protected]"))
We look forward to receiving your feedbacks.
