Project: LBAProject: LBA
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?"
Data Set: LBA-ECO LC-13 GIS Coverages of Logged Areas, Tapajos Forest, Para, Brazil: 1996, 1998Data Set: LBA-ECO LC-13 GIS Coverages of Logged Areas, Tapajos Forest, Para, Brazil: 1996, 1998
This data set contains GIS coverages constructed from measurements taken of logged areas in the Tapajos National Forest region of Para, Brazil in 1996 and 1998 (Asner et al., 2004). Coverages include log decks (patios), roads, skids trails, tree-fall locations, and block boundary. They are in ArcInfo SHAPE format (*.shp). The Tapajos data are in latitude/longitude using the WGS84 datum.
