Resource or Project Abstract

4 years of meteorological and CO2 flux measurements taken at a grassland site near Donoughmore Co. Cork. Flux data were measured and averaged over 30 minute intervals using the eddy covariance technique. The QA/QC procedures of CarboEurope-IP were applied. Meteorological data: radiation incoming & outgoing longwave & shortwave; photosynthetically active radiation (PAR), 3D wind speed, air temperature, relative humidity, soil moisture, soil temperature, soil heat flux, CO2 fluxes, latent and sensible heat fluxes, atmospheric pressure. Flux data have NOT been gap filled.
