Detailed Description

When wetland plants in the northeast emerged this spring, USGS scientists were working from home and unable to start many planned research activities. However, many instruments were already deployed and continued to collect information critical to USGS research. These instruments still need visits occasionally to download data and make sure there aren’t any problems. Pictured here is an eddy flux tower, which measures greenhouse gas fluxes continuously.
