Time Period2002-01-01 to 2006-01-18


This data set contains a single text file which reports temperature measurements 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 January 2002 through January 2006 (Figure 1).Air temperature measurements were collected at 8 levels on the tower (61.9, 49.8, 39.1, 28.4, 18.3, 10.1, 2.8, and 0.6 m). Temperature measurements were made with aspirated thermistors (Met One 076B-4 aspiration with YSI 44032 thermistors) and averaged over a 1 hour interval.Co-located measurements included a Licor gas analyzer that measured (a) the CO2 and H2O concentration profiles at 8 levels in and above the canopy (1 level every 2 minutes), (b) the instantaneous integrated canopy storage of CO2 and H2O, using a design that pulled air simultaneously through all 8 inlets (once every 20 minutes), and (c) eddy fluxes of CO2 and H2O were measured at two levels (58m and 47m) using tower-mounted closed-path Licor 6262 gas analyzers and Campbell CSAT3 sonic anemometers. A comprehensive set of meteorological parameters (air pressure, PAR, net radiation, precipitation, etc) were also measured. See related data sets.With the permission of the author, Hutyra, L.R. 2007.

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?"
