Short summary
One continuing, significant source of uncertainty in global climate predictions is the combined effect of wind and pressure on trace gas fluxes. We quantified the effects of wind speed and pressure on fluxes of CO2 and CH4 within three different ecosystems. Trace gas fluxes are positively correlated with both wind speed and pressure near the soil surface but we argue that wind speed is a better proxy for general use. These results have implications for a number of global feedback mechanisms.
