Oak Ridge National Laboratory-Free-Air CO2 Enrichment (FACE) experiment

Oak Ridge National Laboratory-Free-Air CO2 Enrichment (FACE) experiment


Oak Ridge, Tennessee (TN), US
A free-air CO2 enrichment (FACE) facility, comprising five 25-m plots was constructed in a deciduous forest on the Oak Ridge National Environmental Research Park. The study site is a sweetgum (Liquidambar styraciflua) monoculture planted in 1988. This closed-canopy, 18-m tall stand offers the opportunity for rigorous tests of hypotheses that address the essential features of a forest stand and how they could influence the responses to CO2.
