Title: AmeriFlux AmeriFlux CA-SCC Scotty Creek Landscape

Abstract

This is the AmeriFlux version of the carbon flux data for the site CA-SCC Scotty Creek Landscape. Site Description - The Scotty Creek flux tower is located in an organic-rich boreal forest-wetland landscape about 50 km south of Fort Simpson in the Taiga Plains of the Mackenzie watershed. The tower was installed in 2013 and operates an open-path EC system year-round running on solar power only. Flux footprints contain about 50 % forested peat plateaus and 50 % wetlands (i.e., collapse-scar bogs). The forests are underlain by permafrost, while the treeless wetlands are permafrost-free. The tower itself is located on a forested peat plateau. Black spruce tree density on plateaus is sparse and the mean canopy height is ca. 5 m.
