About hesseflux

hesseflux collects functions used for processing Eddy covariance data of the ICOS ecosystem site FR-Hes.

The post-processing functionality for Eddy flux data is similar to the R-package REddyProc and includes basically the steps described in Papale et al. (Biogeosciences, 2006) plus some extensions such as the daytime method of flux partitioning (Lasslop et al., Global Change Biology 2010).


The complete documentation for hesseflux is available at:

Quick usage guide

Post-processing Eddy covariance data that is in format

An example script that makes all the steps described in Papale et al. (Biogeosciences, 2006) is given in the example directory. It is simply called:

python hesseflux_example.cfg

The script is governed by a configuration file in Python’s standard configparser format. The example configuration file hesseflux_example.cfg is highly commented. See the User Guide for a step by step guide through the script and the configuration file.


The easiest way to install is via pip:

pip install hesseflux
