Short Name:

Conifer Needle Chlorophyll Fluorescence, Niwot Ridge, Colorado, USA, 2017-2018

This dataset provides chlorophyll fluorescence measurements made on pine and spruce needle tissues at the Niwot Ridge AmeriFlux Core site (US-NR1) near Nederland, Colorado, USA, during the summers of 2017 and 2018. Two types of measurements were made using pulse-amplitude-modulation (PAM) fluorometry: the photosystem II (PSII) operating efficiency in the light (Fq'/Fm' at variable light levels), and the maximum quantum efficiency of PSII photochemistry (Fv/Fm) on dark-acclimated tissues. Chlorophyll fluorescence measurements were made to determine seasonality of photosynthetic performance at the needle level.
