An Eddy Covariance System, like the FluxPak is designed to measure fluxes in the surrounding air, such as momentum flux, latent heat flux and sensible heat flux. The FluxPak consists of an Ultrasonic Anemometer and DataPacker to combine various analog and digital outputs with the Ultrasonic Anemometer, and Flux Measurement Software package. The basic system will provide momentum and sensible heat fluxes, by adding a hygrometer, H2O and latent heat fluxes can also be made available.
The basic package of the FluxPak system can be fabricated around a desktop PC, a laptop/notebook PC or it can even be assembled into a weatherproof enclosure for harsh environments.
For an eddy covariance system, the DataPacker can also be used to combine various analog and digital outputs with the ultrasonic anemometer output.
