Development of an easy-to-use open database system, AsiaFlux Database (AsiaFlux DB)
, is one of the key activities of AsiaFlux. An effective use of the AsiaFluxDB provides a number of benefits, including: Distinguishing (extract) essential characteristics of material exchanges between individual sites (ecosystems) and the atmosphere, Advances in understanding of material circulation in Asian region, Contribution to Asian environmental management strategy by extending cooperation with the modeling and remote sensing communities, and Efficient upgrading of observation techniques and analysis processes. All data sets registered in AsiaFluxDB are provided by research group at observation sites in AsiaFlux network. Each data set is acquired and analyzed by data provider, and contents in the data set are copyrighted to the individual data provider unless stated otherwise.
All data sets can be downloaded from AsiaFlux DB as long as user agree and abide by AsiaFluxDB Fair-Use Policy. We hope this DB will greatly influence this study field and incourage further education for young researchers.
AsiaFlux Database and Data Policy Subworkgroup would like to provide a mutually beneficial database for both data providers and data users and wish your active participation in AsiaFluxDB. Additionally, we wish AsiaFlux DB becomes the entrance for new studies and produces new encounters.
