Interannual and seasonal variation of momentum exchange at a midlatitude mixed deciduous forest
Seasonal variation of leaf state affects momentum exchange between forest and the atmosphere. Nearly continuous 10 Hz sampling of relevant variables yielded half-hourly estimates of turbulent fluxes above and below the canopy of a predominantly red oak forest at Harvard Forest (42.53 N, 72.19 W, north central Massachusetts USA) during 2002-2011 period. These fluxes are used to assess seasonal and daily variation of momentum flux above forest, within and below the forest crown.
