Data Set Overview
|Data set||LBA-ECO CD-08 Tree Diameter Measurements, Jacaranda Plots, Manaus, Brazil: 1999-2001|
|Project||Large Scale Biosphere-Atmosphere|
|Time Period||1999-06-20 to 2001-12-27|
This data set provides diameter at breast height (DBH) measurements made of trees in a dense terra-firme tropical moist forest at the ZF-2 Experimental Station, 90 km north of Manaus, Brazil. DBH was measured over two transects (East to West and North to South) which were established in 1996 by the Jacaranda Project (agreement between the National Institute for Research in the Amazon (INPA) and the Japan International Cooperation Agency, JICA). For each tree, a metal dendrometer band was fixed to the trunk and growth in circumference was measured monthly with digital calipers. The transects measured 20-m x 2500-m, and were stratified by plateau, slope, and baixio (lowland areas near small streams). Topography location, distance along the transect, height at which the band was installed, local tree name, and field notes are also provided in the data files. Measurements were taken between June 1999 and December 2001.

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?"
