Adelaide River OzFlux tower site
Ecosystem flux data from the Adelaide River site, Northern Territory.

The Adelaide River flux station was located approximately 10.5km south east of Bachelor, Northern Territory: 13°04'37.2”S, 131°7'4.8"E.

The flux tower site was classified as Savanna dominated by Eucalyptus tectifica and Planchonia careya.

Elevation of the site was close to 90m and mean annual precipitation at a nearby Bureau of Meteorology site is 1730mm. Maximum temperatures range from 31.4°C (in June) to 36.8°C (in October) while minimum temperatures range from 16.2°C (in July) to 25.1°C (in December). Maximum temperature vary seasonally by approximately 5.4°C and minimum temperatures vary by approximately 8.9°C.

The instrument mast was 15 meters tall. Heat, water vapour and carbon dioxide measurements were taken using the open-path eddy flux technique. Temperature, humidity, wind speed, wind direction, rainfall, incoming and reflected shortwave radiation and net radiation were measured above the canopy. Soil heat fluxes are measured and soil moisture content was gathered using time domain reflectometry.
