Site Description
The Tumbarumba Wet Eucalypt SuperSite is a member of the Australian SuperSite Network (SuperSites, http://www.supersites.net.au/), a facility within the Australian Terrestrial Ecosystem Network (TERN, http://www.tern.org.au/). The Tumbarumba Wet Eucalypt SuperSite is located in the Bago State Forest in New South Wales on the western edge of the Snowy Mountains. Key research objectives include: • How does airflow, terrain and forest structure affect the way the ecosystem takes up and releases carbon and uses water? • How can measures of carbon pools, stocks and turnover rates, atmospheric fluxes, be used to improve the surface–vegetation–atmospheric–transfer (SVAT) models? • What effects does vegetation have on the lower atmosphere, including the exchange of heat and the production of particles and chemical species that contribute to the formation of aerosols? We acknowledge and honour all traditional owners past and present of this area, including the Wiradjuri and Ngarigo people, who lived and continue to live on this land.
