A system for measuring the turbulent fluxes of ozone, nitric acid, and other gases was operated at two sites in 1994. These direct measurements of fluxes are for comparison with those calculated for National Dry Deposition Network sites using an inferential model approach. Ozone flux was determined by the eddy correlation technique, while nitric acid flux was obtained from measurements of concentration gradient and vertical exchange coefficient. Ozone fluxes over corn at Bondville, IL, showed strongly diurnal patterns with nighttime values about one-tenth the daytime peak values.
