Eddy Covariance Data Products Now Available on NEON Data Portal

May 21 2018
Want to watch the planet breathe? You're in luck—a whole new set of data products that let you do just that is now available from the NEON project. These eddy-covariance (EC) or “flux” data products give scientists a powerful new tool to monitor how energy, water, carbon dioxide and other gases move between the earth’s surface and the atmosphere.
