Abstract

This report summarizes the results obtained from the Biogenic Emissions in the Mediterranean Area (BEMA) measuring campaign in Montpellier region, France, in June 1995. Measurements were performed at the site to characterize the seasonal variability of meteorological conditions, physiology, emission rates and concentrations and to map the distribution of the major vegetation types. The objectives of the campaign were identified by the BEMA operational plan group as follows:
to estimate fluxes of trace compounds from 2 specific ecosystems, forest and garrigue, using cuvette and micrometerological methods;
to study the influence of physiological and micrometerological parameters on plant emissions;
to characterize the air quality of the sites during the measuring period;
to improve the experimental methodologies. es.
