LBA-ECO CD-32 Flux Tower Network Data Compilation, Brazilian Amazon: 1999-2006

Data Set Overview

Data setLBA-ECO CD-32 Flux Tower Network Data Compilation, Brazilian Amazon: 1999-2006
Release date2013-07-26
ProjectLarge Scale Biosphere-Atmosphere
Time Period1999-01-01 to 2006-12-31


This data set is a compilation of carbon and energy eddy covariance flux, meteorology, radiation, canopy temperature, humidity, and CO2 profiles and soil moisture and temperature profile data that were collected at nine towers across the Brazilian Amazon. Independent investigators provided the data from a variety of flux tower projects over the period 1999 thru 2006. The data have been harmonized across projects, additional quality control checks were performed, and the data were aggregated to several time intervals. Two versions of data are provided. One version is as received from the investigators and the second was processed through a series of automated and manual quality control steps. This data set includes 18 compressed (*.zip) data files with the two versions of data files for each of the nine sites.

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?"
