AmeriFlux is a network of PI-managed sites measuring ecosystem CO2, water, and energy fluxes in North, Central and South America. It was established to connect research on field sites representing major climate and ecological biomes, including tundra, grasslands, savanna, crops, and conifer, deciduous, and tropical forests. As a grassroots, investigator-driven network, the AmeriFlux community has tailored instrumentation to suit each unique ecosystem. This “coalition of the willing” is diverse in its interests, use of technologies and collaborative approaches. As a result, the AmeriFlux Network continually pioneers new ground.
EcoSIS (Ecological Spectral Information System) is a data repository focusing on spectral data.
FLUXNET is a global network includes more than eight hundred active and historic flux measurement sites, dispersed across most of the world’s climate space and representative biomes. It is organized through the Regional Networks that contribute data to FLUXNET datasets available at the FLUXNET website hosted at the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (USA).
SPECCHIO is a spectral information system designed to hold reference spectra and spectral campaign data obtained by spectroradiometers. The inclusion of a rich metadata set in the data model ensures the longevity of spectral data and enables the sharing of spectral data between research groups.
