Tower for monitoring the greenhouse effect in the Tambopata reserve – Sages Tower

About the project

The purpose was to demonstrate a scale sequestration measurement strategy that includes inorganic and organic carbon transport in turbulent flow at forest canopy level and related measurements. A 45m equipped tower was built to monitor carbon fluxes above the canopy.
