Congoflux: A new facility in Yangambi to study the Congo Basin forests

Yangambi, in the Democratic Republic of Congo, is home to the first eddy covariance tower in the Congo Basin since October 2020: Congoflux, a scientific structure that measures exchanges of greenhouse gases, such as carbon dioxide, methane, and nitrous oxide, between the atmosphere and the forest. The data produced by Congoflux is essential to understand the contribution of the Congo Basin forest to climate change mitigation and thereby it will inform decision-making on forest conservation.
