Data Set Overview

Data setLBA-ECO ND-04 Pasture Soil Water and Precipitation, Km 54, Manaus, Brazil: 1999-2001
Release date2014-09-10
ProjectLarge Scale Biosphere-Atmosphere
Time Period1999-01-01 to 2001-12-31


This data set contains soil water measurements to a depth of 3 meters for the years 1999, 2000, and 2001, and total monthly precipitation data for 1999-2000. The data were collected from a pasture site located at the Embrapa Pasture Research Site, a former cattle research station 54 km north of Manaus on the highway BR 174 Manaus-Boa Vista, Brazil. There are three comma-separated data files (.csv) with 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?"
