Purpose
Study of: Carbon and energy balance via long-term eddy covariance measurements (since 2005) ·         Carbon storage and advection ·         Physiological processes (photosynthesis, respiration, (evapo)transpiration) ·         Understanding the whole spruce forest ecosystem and forecasting the response to management and environmental change
History
Experimental ecological workplace (EEP) Bílý Kříž was founded in 1986 as a part of the project “Complex research of the impact of air pollutants on the forest management of the Beskydy Mountains”, originally as a climatological station located in the forest environment. Research activity in the current ecosystem station in the Norway spruce forest started at 1998. In the year 1997, two lamellar domes were built for investigation of the influence of elevated CO2 concentration on physiology response of forest trees. During the experiments, pure Norway spruce stand and a mixture of Norway spruce and Beech were cultivated and investigated. Measurement of fluxes of energy and matters (CO2, water vapour) was started in 2004 in the forest ecosystem station.
