NACP Site-Level Synthesis

Site List

The NACP site interim synthesis is collecting simulations for over 50
North American eddy covariance sites. For detailed site descriptions, see:
AmeriFlux site information and Fluxnet Canada

Notes (apply to: Priority 1, Priority 2 ,and Priority 3 Sites):

1Start-end years in the gap-filled weather data. Partial years (from flux data record)
  have been extended to complete years of surface weather data to simplify model
2Types assigned for convenience in this project, to identify combination of vegetation
  type and climate zone as an aid in site selection. These type names are not intended
  to match the IGBP classification assigned in other databases:

  CRO = crop, GRA = grassland, ENFB = Evergreen needleleaf forest (boreal),
  ENFT = evergreen needleleaf forest (temperate), DBF = deciduous broadleaf forest,
  MF = mixed (deciduous/evergreen) forest, WSA = woody savanna, SHR = shrubland,
  TUN = tundra, WET = wetland.

Priority 1 sites:

Primary sites with complete gap-filled forcing, flux, ancillary and biological data sets (36 sites). Sites in bold ("Top-Ten" list) were suggested as a starting point for modeling groups providing simulations for the Fall AGU meeting in December 2008.
