Quick Reference

An examination of the productivity and respiration of an entire ecosystem by tracing changes in atmospheric gas (usually carbon dioxide) concentrations. Such studies are complicated by turbulence in the atmosphere and require the construction of detailed computer models of gas movements in order to calculate changes in gas levels. See aerodynamic method.
