Title: AmeriFlux US-Mpj Mountainair Pinyon-Juniper Woodland

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.

  1. In 2012 DOE established the AmeriFlux Management Project (AMP) at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (LBNL) to support the broad AmeriFlux community and the AmeriFlux sites. AmeriFlux is a network of PI-managed sites measuring ecosystem CO2, water, and energy fluxes in North, Central and South America. It was established to connect research on field sites representing major climate and ecological biomes, including tundra, grasslands, savanna, crops, and conifer, deciduous, and tropical forests. AMP collaborates with AmeriFlux scientists to ensure the quality and availability of the continuous, long-term ecosystem measurements necessary to understand these ecosystems and to build effective models and multisitemore » syntheses. « less

  1. 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 alongmore » 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. « less
