[Extract] his special issue of Biogeosciences synthesises and interprets the research outputs and results from OzFlux, the Australian and New Zealand Flux Network. The OzFlux community dedicates this special issue to Dr Ray Leuning, who made profound and significant contributions to our knowledge of land–vegetation–atmosphere interactions and generously offered his thoughtful consideration to students and early career researchers globally. His dedication to teaching was expressed through direct interactions, as a regular lecturer in the flux course in the USA, and the annual data workshops that he originally organised for OzFlux and that continue in his honour. Ray personally visited many potential sites for the OzFlux network across Australia and New Zealand, where his insight ensured that best practice and fit-for-purpose measurement methods were used that were appropriate for each location’s unique situation. Ray, with colleagues, founded OzFlux in 2001 (Beringer et al., 2016) and continued to guide OzFlux as it grew its depth of understanding and grew in size, scope and impact.
