CO2 balance for 2011

Cumulative NEE in Neustift, 2001-2011.

The annual CO2 balance for 2011 is now available. Uptake started very early in spring and attained close-to-record values before the second cut, but less than usual carbon uptake during September (before the third cut) and comparably large losses during the wam autumn caused the annual CO2 balance to top out pretty much average and thus neutral.
