In recent years Australia has undergone reductions in science funding, but there are positive signs that support will increase following recent changes in both the political and research infrastructure funding landscapes. This makes us hopeful that OzFlux, the Australian and New Zealand Flux tower network will only need to get through a period of restricted… More

In the context of the ICOS (Integrated Carbon Observation System) Reseach Infrastructure, the equivalent of the American NEON in Europe, the 10 year-old Fontainebleau-Barbeau (FR-Fon site) forest station has been upgraded to comply with the ICOS Class 1 mandatory requirements. These improvements consisted in the installation of new ICOS standardized sensors and instruments as well as the… More
Inspired by Ray Leuning’s lecture on ‘flux towers I have seen’ at the Colorado Flux short course, I thought I’d offer a contribution to the new FLUXNET blog with a short essay on the flux towers I have had the privilege to visit the past two years during trips to meetings and while on sabbatical in Europe. We intend… More

Congratulations to Beverly Law, who was honored as 2014 AGU Fellow yesterday at a ceremony during AGU Fall Meeting, San Francisco, California!. This honor is in recognition of her pioneering contributions integrating flux measurements, remote sensing, and ecosystem models from regional to global scales. Bev Law is well known to the AmeriFlux community, where she has… More
Dennis viewing flux data at his AmeriFlux site at Sherman Island (US-Snd). I have just stepped down as editor in chief of JGR Biogeosciences. After having handled over a 1000 papers many trends have emerged regarding the quality of papers, the expectations of referees and seeing what published papers become more successful than others. Much… More
