Characterisation of short-term extreme methane fluxes related to non-turbulent mixing above an Arctic permafrost ecosystem

Carsten Schaller et al.

Data sets

Flux calculation of short turbulent events in Chersky in the Sakha (Yakutia) Republic, Far Eastern Federal District of Russia Carsten Schaller, Mathias Göckede, and Thomas Foken https://doi.org/10.1594/PANGAEA.873260

Short summary
Methane emissions from biogenic sources, e.g. Arctic permafrost ecosystems, are associated with uncertainties due to the high variability of fluxes in both space and time. Besides the traditional eddy covariance method, we evaluated a method based on wavelet analysis, which does not require a stationary time series, to calculate fluxes. The occurrence of extreme methane flux events was strongly correlated with the soil temperature. They were triggered by atmospheric non-turbulent mixing.
