In order to evaluate the CO2 exchange between grassland and theatmosphere a monitoring programme was carried out on a grassland site in the Netherlands. The measurements took place within the framework of the Dutch National Research Programme on global air pollution and climatic change. ECN has measured the CO2 exchange over grassland on a clay-peat soil for 4 years at a site called Cabauw. A smaller dataset on the exchange over peat soil was obtained at Zegveld, which is, as Cabauw, located in the centre of the Netherlands. The dataset that is obtained is used by the Wageningen University to construct and validate a grassland model, with the final goal to better identify one of the important missing aspects of the complex problem of climate change. 30 figs., 17 tabs., 18 refs.
