Surface In-Situ Networks
The Chequamegon Ecosystem-Atmosphere Study (ChEAS) is a multi-investigator co-operative network studying carbon and water regional exchanges in the mixed forest/wetland landscapes of Northern Wisconsin and Upper Michigan. A suite of flux towers, micromet towers, water table depth stations, sapflux and biometry sites exist including the globally unique 447-m tall WLEF television station flux tower.
