Abstract

The KoFlux program is dedicated to understanding the fluxes of energy and matter, water resource management, and net ecosystem production in key ecosystems of Monsoon Asia. Under the framework of AsiaFlux, it is a joint effort with determined, comprehensive international strategies to bring Asia's key ecosystems under observation. Built upon the augmented KoFlux infrastructure (i.e., Gwangneung supersite), the 'HydroKorea' and 'CarboKorea' projects pursue new methodologies to assess water and carbon cycles at various temporal, spatial, and process scales. Particularly, the multiscaling approaches are used to link process-level studies, flux footprint, ecohydrological and biogeochemical schemes, and high-resolution satellite images. We hope that the work presented here encourages more ground-breaking studies aimed at bridging the gaps in the cross-scale studies of ecohydrological and biogeochemical cycles in heterogeneous and complex landscapes.
