We are starting to curate flux-related video materials from FLUXNET and regional network activities. Stay tuned for more development here, and for now please enjoy the following resources.
FluxCourse lecture snippets (these short videos are excerpts from the longer FluxCourse videos linked to above. Each short video focuses on a particular topic, and includes English subtitles):
Reynolds decomposition (with Ray Leuning)
Storage corrections (with Ray Leuning)
Virtual volumes and basic equations (with Ray Leuning)
Chamber based measurements (with Pat Morgan)
Eddy covariance theory, Part 1 (with Larry Jacobsen)

Forests for the Future: How Can Trees Offset Carbon Emissions? (from Christopher Gough, [email protected])
Summary: This high-school level activity explores the chemistry and biology underlying forest carbon sequestration, a process that removes carbon from the atmosphere via photosynthesis and storage in plant tissues and soils. Students calculate their entire carbon footprint or just one component that is relevant to their personal lives (transportation, heating/cooling, food, clothing, etc.) and then use the data provided in the “forest flux” sheet to calculate the area of that type of forest that needs to grow in order to offset those carbon emissions for the footprint calculator.
Environmental Drivers of Ecosystem Carbon Fluxes from Minutes to Years (from Christopher Gough, [email protected])
Summary: This college level activity allows students to build on fundamental concepts of ecosystem production and carbon cycling, combining this knowledge with open long-term data from ecological and meteorological networks to uncover the environmental drivers of carbon fluxes.
