Whroo OzFlux tower site
The Whroo flux station was located approximately 45km south west of Shepparton, Victoria: 36° 40' 22.98"S, 145° 1' 34.37"E.

The flux tower site was classified as box woodland. Elevation of the site is close to 165 m and mean annual precipitation from a nearby Bureau of Meteorology site measured 558 mm. Maximum temperatures ranged from 29.8oC (in January) to 12.6oC (in July), while minimum temperatures ranged from 14.2oC (in February) to 3.2oC (in July). Maximum temperatures varied on a seasonal basis by approximately 17.2oC and minimum temperatures by 11.0oC.

The instrument mast is 35m tall. Heat, water vapour and carbon dioxide measurements are 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 were measured and soil moisture content was gathered using time domain reflectometry.
