LBA-ECO CD-10 CO2 Profiles at km 67 Tower Site, Tapajos National Forest

Data Set Overview

Data setLBA-ECO CD-10 CO2 Profiles at km 67 Tower Site, Tapajos National Forest
Release date2008-06-13
ProjectLarge Scale Biosphere-Atmosphere
Time Period2002-01-01 to 2006-01-18


Eddy fluxes of CO2 and H2O are measured at two levels (58m and 47m) using tower-mounted closed-path Licor 6262 analyzers and Campbell CSAT3 sonic anemometers. A third Licor gas analyzer measures (a) the CO2/H2O concentration profile (1 of 8 levels every 2 minutes) and (b) the instantaneous integrated canopy storage of CO2/H2O, using a design pulling air simultaneously through 8 inlets (once every 20 minutes). Comprehensive meteorological data (air temperature, PAR, net radiation, etc) are also included. Pressure and temperature of the Licor cells are controlled to 500 torr and 48 degrees C. Eddy licors are automatically zeroed every 2 hours and the profile licor every 20 minutes. All Licors are automatically calibrated with span gases (at 325, 400, and 475 ppm) every 6 hours.

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?"
