Turbulent sensible and latent heat fluxes, net all-wave radiation flux and CO2 flux are monitored by these two Flux Towers, which are installed in the city of Heraklion and representative of a wide area around the Sensors. Both are equipped with IRGASON Integrated CO2/H2O Open-Path Gas Analysers, 3D Sonic Anemometers and CNR1/CNR4 Net Radiometers. The first one (HECKOR) operates since 2016 at the city center and the second one (HECMAS) operates since 2021 at a residential area in Heraklion, while their real time measurements (temperature, wind and air pressure, radiation, fluxes) are available from a dedicated Web Portal providing measurement charts.
