Estimating immediate post-fire carbon fluxes using the eddy-covariance technique

Bruna R. F. Oliveira et al.

Data sets

Daily Carbon Dioxide fluxes measured by an eddy-covariance station in a recently burnt Mediterranean pine stand in Central Portugal B. R. F. Oliveira, J. J. Keizer, and T. Foken

Short summary
Forest fires have a significant impact on carbon dioxide emissions. The present study from a pine forest in Portugal is one of the few where measurements of CO2 fluxes were started immediately (1.5 months) after the forest fire. Carbon dioxide emissions were linked to soil humidity. Therefore, they started after the beginning of the rainfall in autumn. Due to the beginning of vegetation, the site was already a carbon dioxide sink the following year.
