Over 600 flux stations are presently operational as part of continental and national flux networks and under the umbrella of the FLUXNET global network, with multiple dozens more flux stations operating as smaller dedicated networks and standalone projects. A total of over 2100 flux tower locations had provided data in the past covering large portions of the globe.

In the last 10 years, multiple new highly advanced software, codes and routines to analyze various aspects of this wealth of flux and ancillary data were developed by individuals, research groups, regional and national networks. From raw-data processing over multi-method data cleaning, gap filling and flux partitioning to flux-footprint budgeting and bottom-up modeling, such advanced tools offer an unprecedented analytical power to the ecosystem flux community.

This session is designed to bring together scientists and developers who have developed such tools utilizing the latest in flux methodology, ecosystem measurements, new instrumentations, and modern computing, so as to provide an orientation map of available tools to ecosystem researchers, flux scientists and ecosystem modelers.

If you developed a tool or code that you think is useful for understanding ecosystem processes and that facilitates data processing, this is the right session to submit to.
