ICOS Ecosystem Instructions for Ancillary Vegetation Measurements in Mires

Maarten Op de Beeck, Simone Sabbatini & Dario Papale
This Instruction document describes the measurement of Green Area Index (GAI) and Aboveground Biomass (AGB) at ICOS ecosystem stations in mires. The focus of these Instructions is skewed towards rather sparsely vegetated fen and bog mires, as found in boreal and subarctic Europe and with vegetation primarily made up of mosses, herbaceous vascular plants, and dwarf shrubs. Only measurements on mire vegetation comprising one or more of these three plant functional types (PFTs) are hence...

ICOS Ecosystem Instructions for Storage Fluxes Measurements (CO2, H2O, CH4 and N2O)

Giacomo Nicolini & Dario Papale
The storage flux term, added to the turbulent flux estimated by the Eddy Covariance (EC) system, allows for a closer quantification of the true net ecosystem exchange (NEE) of a given scalar (e.g. CO2, H2O, CH4, N2O, temperature) The storage flux of a given scalar C is given by the vertical integration of the scalar rate of change within the control volume. It is measured by sampling a number of points distributed between the ground...

Denis Loustau, Christelle Aluome & Dario Papale
The nutritional status of the canopy foliage in terms of macronutrients (C, N, P, K, Ca, Mg, Fe, Cu, Mn, Zn) has a strong influence on the carbon cycle and energy balance of terrestrial ecosystems and therefore on the energy, water and greenhouse gas fluxes between terrestrial ecosystems and the atmosphere. The leaf mass to area ratio, LMA, is also a widely used leaf functional trait the spatial and temporal variations of which are essential...

ICOS Ecosystem Instructions for Plant Species Reporting

Guido Pellis & Dario Papale
This Instruction document describes the procedure to report plant species present in the ICOS stations to the ETC. The species classification (to be done in the field or in the lab) is not discussed here because it is a standard procedure that must be done by experts in the station team.
