Robson Creek OzFlux tower site
Data from the Robson Creek site, Far North Queensland.
The Robson Creek flux station is located in the Danbulla National Park, part of the Wet Tropics World Heritage forest estate. It was established in 2013 and is managed by James Cook University.

The Robson Creek OzFlux tower is part of the Robson Creek Rainforest SuperSite :which is part of the TERN SuperSite Network.

The Robson Creek flux station is located at the foothills of the Lamb Range:
17° 7'2.89"S 145°37'48.50"E

The forest is classified as complex mesophyll vine forest, there are 211 species in the 25Ha plot, and average tree height is 28m. Elevation of the site is 711m and mean annual precipitation is 2000mm. The upland rainforests of the Atherton Tablelands are some of the most biodiverse and carbon dense forests in Australia.

The instruments are mounted on a free standing tower at 40m. Fluxes of heat, water vapour and carbon dioxide are measured using the open-path eddy flux technique. Supplementary measurements above the canopy include temperature, humidity, windspeed, wind direction, rainfall, incoming and reflected shortwave radiation and net radiation.

Level 3 data for 2015 - 2018 were updated 20/12/2018, correcting a rainfall issue in 2015 and a wind direction issue 2016 - 2018. A data gap 2019-02-14 07:30:00 - 2019-02-21 17:30:00 was due to a major power supply failure on the tower.
