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-09 Daily Precipitation for Altamira and Santarem, Para, Brazil: 1961-1998Data Set: LBA-ECO LC-09 Daily Precipitation for Altamira and Santarem, Para, Brazil: 1961-1998
This data set reports daily total precipitation data retrieved from Brazilian National Institute of Meteorology (INMET) network for three stations near two Amazonian research sites: Altamira, and Santarem, from 1961-1998. Daily precipitation totals are provided in one comma-separated ASCII file for three stations in Para, including two sites in Altamira: Altamira City and on the Transamazon Highway at Km 100 near Medicilandia (operated by EMBRAPA); and, one site in Santarem: Taperinha. Data availability varies by station (sublocation): Altamira City from 1961-1990, Transamazon Km 100 from 1982-1998, and Taperinha from 1983-1992.
