Short summary
Using the eddy covariance and biometrical methods, the carbon balance was measured in a deciduous broadleaf forest in Japan, where incidental damage by a strong typhoon damaged 40% of trees. Before the disturbance, the forest was an evident carbon sink, and it subsequently transformed into a net carbon source. GPP only decreased by 6% just after the disturbance. On the other hand, Re increased by 39%. Undergrowth dwarf bamboo has an important role in the carbon balance.
