Abstract

Trace Gases and Energy Exchange over Southwest European Grasslands A contribution to subproject BIATEX-2 M.S. Feliciano\ C A Pio* and A. Vermeulen^ ^Departamento de Ambiente e Ordenamento, Universidade de Aveiro, 3800 Aveiro, Portugal ^Netherlands Energy Foundation (ECN), The Netherlands Introduction The understanding of mass exchange in the atmosphere-biosphere interface is essential to evaluate numerical models and to assess the environmental effects of air pollution. In the European continent most of experimental data related to the dry deposition of pollutants have been obtained in northern countries. Thus, it is necessary to verify experimentally if extrapolations derived from those data apply to southern European conditions, where summers are drier and the vegetation has a different seasonal cycle. In this perspective, the University of Aveiro carried out field studies on ga
