Bigleaf

Stable Dev Build Status Coverage

Bigleaf.jl is a partial Julia port of Jürgen Knauer's bigleaf R package for the calculation of physical (e.g. aerodynamic conductance, surface temperature) and physiological (e.g. canopy conductance, water-use efficiency) ecosystem properties from eddy covariance data and accompanying meteorological measurements. All calculations are based on a 'big-leaf' representation of the vegetation and return representative bulk ecosystem/canopy variables.

Installation and Loading

The Bigleaf.jl package can be installed with the usual command once:

using Pkg
Pkg.add("Bigleaf")

And then importet to the every Julia session by:

using Bigleaf
