Forest ecosystems annually uptake and respire large amounts of carbon dioxide. In recent years, the uptake of carbon dioxide has outweighed the respiration makin the net ecosystem exchange a ‘sink’ for carbon dioxide. The sensitivity of forest environments, which are highly diverse, to climate change remains a difficult challenge to predict. This is partly because forests are most commonly monitored by stationary tower sites which can only ‘see’ a very small area around them. Using aircraft to monitor forest net ecosystem exchange, a larger area can be monitored to explore how heterogenous these environments actually are.
