Abstract: 
Atmospheric carbon (CO 2) exchange, evapotranspiration (ET) processes, and their interactions with climatic drivers across tropical alpine grasslands are poorly understood. This lack of understanding is particularly evident for the páramo, the highest vegetated frontier in the northern Andes, the main source of water for inter-Andean cities, and a large carbon storage area. Studies of CO 2 and ET fluxes via the standard Eddy Covariance (EC) technique have never been applied to this region, limiting the understanding of diurnal / nocturnal exchanges and budget estimations. In this paper, we report the first EC analysis conducted on the Andean páramo (3765 m a.s.l.); this analysis measured CO 2, ET, and micrometeorological variables over two years (2016–2018) to understand their interactions with climatic / biophysical controls. The páramo was found to be a source of CO 2 and exhibited a net positive exchange …
