geology map
Geological map (1:50'000) of the area around the tower. The tower is located in the center of the map. The map is generated with the map generator of the Geological Survey of Sweden (SGU).

 

footprint
Where does the air come from that is measured at 36 m height at the tower? Footprint area for July 2014 in Norunda. Each contour line adds 10% contribution starting at the tower (red dot); the background map is an illustration of the vegetation height. Calculation done by N. Kljun, Swansea University.

 

vegetation map
Vegetation map of Norunda. Blue areas around the tower represent more than 100 years old forest. Small brown spots south of the tower are small openings. Green-yellow areas in the northern sector and SSW are younger forests, 50-70 years old. Brown areas in the W, S and E are mostly clear cuts of different ages. In the N is a lake. Brown close to the lake is wetland. There are also some clear cuts in yellow color in that direction.
climate diagram
Climate Diagram Uppsala (1961-1990, SMHI station Uppsala). The diagram displays monthly averages for temperature and precipitation. When the precipitation curve undercuts the temperature curve, this indicates dry season. When the precipitation curve exceeds the temperature curve, this indicates moist season.

 

soil map
Soil map (1:50'000) of the area around the tower. The tower is located in the center of the map. The map is generated with the map generator of the Geological Survey of Sweden (SGU).
