This website showcases our ongoing research in atmosphere-land and atmosphere-sea interactions. We study the atmospheric exchanges above oil palm, sea, and freshwater bodies. We hope to continuously measure the fluxes for many years to come so that we may gain in-depth insights on the short-term and long-term atmospheric processes of these surfaces.
We explore these interactions using the "eddy covariance" method, a fast response open-path gas analyzer and anemometer system that is capable in measuring vertical movement, or "fluxes", of moisture and carbon dioxide. To supplement the flux data, we measure weather parameters, such as solar radiation, temperature, relative humidity and wind so that we get a better understanding of the feedbacks and responses of the exchanges and its drivers.
