Eddy Covariance Method
for Scientific, Industrial, Agricultural, and Regulatory Applications
by George Burba
Published June, 2013
Step-by-Step Guide to Flux Measurements.
Including theory, experiment design, implementation, data processing, and analysis.
The "Eddy Covariance Method for Scientific, Industrial, Agricultural, and Regulatory Applications: A Field Book on Measuring Ecosystem Gas Exchange and Areal Emission Rates" book is intended to familiarize the reader with the general theoretical principles, requirements, applications, and planning and processing steps of the eddy covariance method. This book will assist readers in furthering their understanding of the method, and provides references such as micrometeorology textbooks, networking guidelines and journal papers. In particular, it is designed to help scientific, industrial, agricultural, and regulatory research projects and monitoring programs with field deployment of the eddy covariance method in applications beyond micrometeorology.Download Free PDF Order Hard Copy (75 USD)
