Insights into the biosphere-atmosphere exchange of organic gases from seasonal observations over a ponderosa pine forest
The biosphere-atmosphere exchange of organic gases over forests contributes to the formation of air pollution and the availability of forest nutrients. Forests can be both sources and sinks of volatile and semi-volatile organic compounds to the atmosphere. The role that forests play in controlling organic acid concentrations remains poorly understood, with multiple model-measurement comparisons reporting missing sources of formic acid. Large, missing sources of organic acids have been identified over different forested environments. Despite substantial seasonal variability in forest productivity ...
