Emission fluxes of isoprene, its oxidation products, and other oxygenated VOCs were measured using eddy covariance above a mixed oak forest in southern England during summer 2005. VOC concentrations were measured using proton-transfer reaction mass spectrometry. Fluxes of isoprene and its oxidation products (MVK and MACR) followed a diurnal pattern consistent with biogenic emission from the forest canopy. Fluxes of other oxygenated VOCs followed a more complex pattern, consistent with vehicle-related sources beyond the forest.
