Data Set Overview
|Data set||LBA-ECO CD-10 Coarse Woody Debris Data at km 67 Tower Site, Tapajos National Forest|
|Project||Large Scale Biosphere-Atmosphere|
This data sets reports properties of fallen course woody debris in an old-growth upland forest at the Para Western (Santarem) - km 67, Primary Forest Tower Site. This site is in the Tapajos National Forest located in north central Brazil. Measurements extend from April 2001 through July 2001.Standing and Fallen coarse woody debris (CWD), or necromass were measured in a series of ecological plots at the km 67 eddy flux tower site in the Tapajos National Forest (Figure 2). The data set includes different size classes of debris measured in different plot sizes. Size classes were: 2-10cm (in 64 m2 subplots) , 10-30cm (in 1600 m2 subplots), 30cm (in 38400 m2 subplots), standing (in entire 50m by 1000m transects).

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?"
