bigleaf is an R package for the calculation of physical (e.g. aerodynamic conductance, surface temperature) and physiological (e.g. canopy conductance, water-use efficiency) ecosystem properties from eddy covariance data and accompanying meteorological measurements. All calculations are based on a 'big-leaf' representation of the vegetation and return representative bulk ecosystem/canopy variables.
