Data Set Overview
|Data set||LBA-ECO CD-10 Tree DBH Measurements at the km 67 Tower Site, Tapajos National Forest|
|Project||Large Scale Biosphere-Atmosphere|
|Time Period||1999-07-10 to 2005-08-31|
This data sets reports diameter at breast height (DBH) measurements in the 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 were made periodically from July 1999 through August 2005.Trees with DBH >35cm were measured for ~2600 trees in four 5ha transects. Trees >10cm were measured in a smaller area (Rice et al., 2004). Measurements were made in 1999, 2001, and 2005. Trees are identified by local common names. A cross reference to scientific names is provided as a companion file.Coarse woody debris and litter samples and measurements were collected same area. See related data sets.

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?"
