REQUEST PROCEDURE
The AmeriFlux data provided on this site are freely available and were furnished by individual AmeriFlux scientists who encourage their use. Please kindly inform in writing (or e-mail) the appropriate AmeriFlux scientist(s) of how you intend to use the data and of any publication plans. It is also important to contact the AmeriFlux investigator to assure you are downloading the latest revision of the data and to prevent potential misuse or misinterpretation of the data. Please acknowledge the data source as a citation or in the acknowledgments if no citation is available. If the AmeriFlux Principal Investigators (PIs) feel that they should be acknowledged or offered participation as authors, they will let you know and we assume that an agreement on such matters will be reached before publishing and/or use of the data for publication. If your work directly competes with the PI's analysis they may ask that they have the opportunity to submit a manuscript before you submit one that uses unpublished data. In addition, when publishing please acknowledge the agency that supported the research. Lastly, we kindly request that those publishing papers using AmeriFlux data provide reprints to the PIs providing the data and to the data archive at the Carbon Dioxide Information Analysis Center (CDIAC). http://public.ornl.gov/ameriflux/dataproducts.shtml
Surface In-Situ Networks
The network provides continuous observations of ecosystem level exchanges of CO2, water, energy and momentum spanning diurnal, synoptic, seasonal, and interannual time scales and is currently composed of sites from North America, Central America, and South America.
