Data Set Overview
|Data set||LBA-ECO CD-05 Forest Understory Fuel Loads, Paragominas, Para, Brazil: 2001|
|Project||Large Scale Biosphere-Atmosphere|
This data set contains estimates of understory fuel loads (forest litter) at six locations near Paragominas in Northeastern Amazonia. Samples were collected from three different forest conditions: primary forest, logged forest, and burned forest. Volumes and weights are provided by size and condition class based on the planar transect method of estimating understory fuel loads (Brown 1971). Means and standard errors are reported from 3 transects in each forest x condition class. There is one comma-delimited data file (.csv) with this data set. DATA QUALITY STATEMENT: The Data Center has determined that there are questions about the quality of the data reported in this data set. The data set has missing or incomplete data, metadata, or other documentation that diminishes the usability of the products.

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?"
