This paper presents the results of a year-long study of the net ecosystem CO2 exchange (NEE) of a tropical peat swamp forest in Sarawak, Malaysia using the eddy covariance method. The diurnal pattern of NEE showed that a peak that typically occurred between 07:30 and 08:00 LT was higher during the dry season (14.9 μmol m-2 s-1) than the wet season (11.5 μmol m-2 s-1) whereas the average daytime and nighttime NEE did not vary markedly between seasons. The seasonal variation of this forest revealed that NEE was generally negative during the wet season and mostly positive in the dry season.
