Eddy covariance measurements of carbon dioxide, energy and water fluxes at a winter wheat field, Lincolnshire, UK, 2012

This dataset contains time series observations of surface-atmosphere exchanges of net ecosystem carbon dioxide exchange (NEE), sensible heat (H) and latent heat (LE), and momentum (τ) measured at a field of winter wheat in Lincolnshire, UK during the 2012 growing season.

Turbulent flux densities were monitored using the micrometeorological eddy covariance (EC) technique between 5th April 2012 and 8th August 2012. The dataset includes ancillary weather and soil physics observations, as well as variables describing atmospheric turbulence and the quality of the turbulent flux observations.

Provenance & quality

Turbulent flux densities were calculated from the raw EC data using the EddyPRO® Flux Calculation Software Version 6.1.

Quality Control of EC data involved removal of statistical outliers and tests that theoretical requirements for the successful application of the EC technique were not violated significantly.

Data gaps in EC data (NEE, LE, H) and the partitioning of NEE into gross ecosystem production and total ecosystem production were performed using the REddyProc Package for R (Reichstein et al., 2019).

Further details are available in the supporting documentation.
