The NEP and NBP estimates serve to determine if a given ecosystem acts as a sink or source. For example, net dissolved oxygen (DO) gain in a given aquatic ecosystem when NPP exceeds Rh, indicates that the ecosystem acts as a DO source (the increased degree of autotrophy), whereas net DO loss when R h exceeds NPP means that the ecosystem acts as a DO sink (the increased degree of heterotrophy). What complicates the quantification of ecosystem metabolisms is the necessity of high-frequency (HF) data/signals to cover longer periods, bigger areas, and faster sampling rates and filtering techniques to extract useful information out of noisy HF data.
