Fen Flux Tower

The Fen tower is located in the valley bottom in a wet sedge ecosystem, which includes Eriophorum angustifolium and dwarf shrubs such as Betula nana and Salix spp.  The 3m tower is situated at 405938.720 E 7612178.324 N  899.668 elevation (UTM Zone 6N NAD83 datum in meters).

The vegetation in the tower footprint is comprised of 52% wet sedge, and 47% tussock tundra, with the balance being made up of open water and bare soil (see figure below).  In June 2012, we will be adding methane flux monitoring cabability to this site. To see tower instrument details click here.
