LBA-ECO CD-06 CO2 Exchange in River Systems Across the Amazon Basin: 2004-2007

Data Set Overview

Data setLBA-ECO CD-06 CO2 Exchange in River Systems Across the Amazon Basin: 2004-2007
Release date2012-11-15
ProjectLarge Scale Biosphere-Atmosphere
Time Period2004-07-01 to 2007-01-23


This data set provides measurements of carbon dioxide flux rates (FCO2), gas transfer velocity (k), and partial pressures (pCO2) at 75 sites on rivers and streams of the Amazon River system in South America for the period beginning July 1, 2004, and ending January 23, 2007. Several fieldwork campaigns occurred between June 2004 and January 2007 in the Amazon River basin, with discharge conditions ranging from low to high flow. The sampled areas span the spectrum of chemical characteristics observed across the entire basin, including, for example, both low and high pH values and suspended sediment loads. There is one comma-delimited data file in this data set.

Large Scale Biosphere-Atmosphere : The Large-Scale Biosphere-Atmosphere Experiment in Amazonia (LBA) is an intensive scientific investigation of the tropical rainforest of Brazil and portions of adjacent countries. Like FIFE and BOREAS, this project uses intensive remote-sensing techniques and ground-based experiments to investigate the atmosphere-biosphere-hydrosphere dynamics of this large tropical region. The LBA Project encompasses several scientific disciplines, or components. The LBA-ECO component focuses on the question: "How do tropical forest conversion, regrowth, and selective logging influence carbon storage, nutrient dynamics, trace gas fluxes, and the prospect for sustainable land use in Amazonia?"
