Flux Tower maintenance

The GCE Eddy Covariance Flux Tower was taken down this week to repair and replace corroded tower infrastructure components and remove some instruments for recalibration. The new tower is now in place, but work wiring up sensors will continue into next week. Reporting of standard meteorological data should resume by the end of next week, barring unforeseen problems; however, the LiCOR CO2 analyzer will be offline for the next month or so during factory servicing, so flux measurements will not be available until the equipment is returned and reinstalled.
