Net ecosystem carbon dioxide (CO2) exchange and meteorological observations from an eroding high altitude blanket bog, Scotland, 2018-2020

This record contains time series observations of land surface-atmosphere exchanges of net ecosystem carbon dioxide exchange (NEE), sensible heat (H) and latent heat (LE), and meteorological observations measured at an eroded upland blanket bog peatland (UK-BAL) in the Eastern Cairngorms in Scotland, UK (56.93° N, -3.16° E, 642 m asl). The dataset comprises eddy covariance CO2, water and energy fluxes, originally collected at 20Hz and processed to 30-minute data, as well as accompanying meteorological observations, originally collected at 15 min and processed to 30-minute data. Time period covered in this dataset is 04/07/2018 until 04/11/2020.

Provenance & quality

Sensible and latent heat fluxes (LE and H, respectively) and NEE were monitored using an enclosed path EC system. A range of micrometeorological measurements were carried out on the same mast as the EC data collection. Soil physics were measured close to the EC mast (within a radius of 5 m).
Thirty‐minute flux densities of sensible and latent heat (LE and H) and net ecosystem CO2 exchange (NEE) were computed from the raw EC data using EddyPRO® Flux Calculation Software (v 7.0.6; LI‐COR Biosciences, Lincoln, Nebraska). Quality control (QC) procedures were applied to ensure only high-quality turbulent flux data were retained for analysis.
