Harvard Forest AmeriFlux Hourly Reactive Trace Gas Measurements: 1990-1996, at CDIAC

Abstract: The Harvard Forest environmental measurement site is part of the
AmeriFlux network of field research projects quantifying the exchange
of carbon dioxide between terrestrial ecosystems and the
atmosphere. The Harvard Forest AmeriFlux reactive trace gas database
contains approximately 62,000 hourly reactive trace gas profiles (CO,
O3, NO2, and NOy) from 1990-1996. CDIAC re-processed the data the data
to conform to naming conventions and data reporting standards agreed
to be the AmeriFlux Science Team. The files contain timestamps
relative to January 1990 to facilitate future integration and
synthesis of data across the entire AmeriFlux network.
