Title: AmeriFlux US-SCw Southern California Climate Gradient - Pinyon/Juniper Woodland

Abstract

This is the AmeriFlux version of the carbon flux data for the site US-SCw Southern California Climate Gradient - Pinyon/Juniper Woodland. Site Description - Half hourly data are available at https://www.ess.uci.edu/~california/. This site is one of six Southern California Climate Gradient flux towers operated along an elevation gradient (sites are US-SCg, US-SCs, US-SCf, US-SCw, US-SCc, US-SCd). This site is a Pinyon Juniper woodland with trees that are at least 150 years old, and ephemeral herbaceous cover following winter or spring rains. The site has experienced repeated drought during the record and roughly 50% Pinyon mortality over the last decade. A nearby tower site (US-SCc) burned in a 1994 wildfire; comparisons between US-SCw and US-SCc provide a measure of the effects of the 1994 on land-atmosphere exchange.

  • This is the AmeriFlux version of the carbon flux data for the site US-Mpj Mountainair Pinyon-Juniper Woodland. Site Description - The Pinon Juniper site is located in Deer Canyon Preserve in central New Mexico. It is situated on an extensive mesa at an elevation of 2100m. The predominant tree species are Pinus edulis and Juniperus monosperma with an understory composed of the C4 perennial grass Bouteloua gracilis.
  • This is the AmeriFlux version of the carbon flux data for the site US-SCs Southern California Climate Gradient - Coastal Sage. Site Description - Half hourly data are available at https://www.ess.uci.edu/~california/. This site is one of six Southern California Climate Gradient flux towers operated along an elevation gradient (sites are US-SCg, US-SCs, US-SCf, US-SCw, US-SCc, US-SCd). This site is a coastal sage shrubland. Coastal sage is a small stature, closed canopy vegetation dominated by drought deciduous shrubs. The site has historically burned every 10-20 years, with the wild fire in October 2007. The tower data sets includes this recovery process.
  • This is the AmeriFlux version of the carbon flux data for the site US-SCg Southern California Climate Gradient - Grassland. Site Description - Half hourly data are available at https://www.ess.uci.edu/~california/. This site is one of six Southern California Climate Gradient flux towers operated along an elevation gradient (sites are US-SCg, US-SCs, US-SCf, US-SCw, US-SCc, US-SCd). This site is a grassland that was historically dominated by exotic annuals and that underwent restoration with a focus on native bunch grasses in the 2010s. The site has historically burned every 10-20 years, with a wildfire in October 2007. The restoration involved several yearsmore » of mowing and herbicide application to suppress exotics followed by dense planting of Nasella bunch grasses.« less
  • This is the AmeriFlux version of the carbon flux data for the site US-SCf Southern California Climate Gradient - Oak/Pine Forest. Site Description - Half hourly data are available at https://www.ess.uci.edu/~california/. This site is one of six Southern California Climate Gradient flux towers operated along an elevation gradient (sites are US-SCg, US-SCs, US-SCf, US-SCw, US-SCc, US-SCd). This site is a mixed oak/pine forest. The site experiences episodic severe drought and mortality, and has also experienced occasional logging and wildfire. Drought and mortality was especially severe in the early 2000s.
  • This is the AmeriFlux version of the carbon flux data for the site US-SCd Southern California Climate Gradient - Sonoran Desert. Site Description - Half hourly data are available at https://www.ess.uci.edu/~california/. This site is one of six Southern California Climate Gradient flux towers operated along an elevation gradient (sites are US-SCg, US-SCs, US-SCf, US-SCw, US-SCc, US-SCd). This site is a low desert site in Southern California's rain shadow; the climate is extremely dry and hot. The site has experience repeated droughts, with negligible rainfall during several years of the record.
