NPP Tropical Forest: San Eusebio, Venezuela, 1973-1974, R1

Data Set Overview

Data setNPP Tropical Forest: San Eusebio, Venezuela, 1973-1974, R1
Release date2013-10-17
ProjectNet Primary Productivity (NPP)
Time Period1915-01-01 to 1996-12-31


This data set contains three ASCII data files (.txt format), one for net primary production (NPP) component data and two for climate data. The NPP studies were conducted in a tropical montane forest in the Sierra de Merida at San Eusebio (8.62 N 71.35 W) in northwestern Venezuela. The forest is mostly primary in character, with some selective logging having taken place in the past. Biomass, litterfall, and nutrient content of above- and below-ground vegetation and soil were determined in 1973-1974.

Net Primary Productivity (NPP): NPP (net primary production) data from existing field measurements are being compiled for approximately 100 study sites covering several major world ecosystem types. These data are used by global change modelers to develop and validate models of vegetation-soil-atmosphere interactions within the global carbon cycle and to help calibrate remote sensing of vegetation worldwide
