CongoFlux: Measuring greenhouse gas exchange to better understand the contribution of the Congo Basin's forests to fight climate change

Export citation

Yangambi, in the Democratic Republic of Congo, is now home to the Congo Basin’s first eddy covariance station: the CongoFlux tower. Reaching high above the canopy, this structure delivers continuous and accurate data on greenhouse gas exchange between the atmosphere and the forest, which is critical to better understand the role that tropical forests play sequestrating carbon and mitigating climate change.
