LBA-ECO CD-04 CO2 Profiles, km 83 Tower Site, Tapajos National Forest

Data Set Overview

Data setLBA-ECO CD-04 CO2 Profiles, km 83 Tower Site, Tapajos National Forest
Release date2009-11-10
ProjectLarge Scale Biosphere-Atmosphere
Time Period2000-07-01 to 2004-03-12


Atmospheric carbon dioxide profiles were measured at 12 levels up to 64 m at the km 83 logged tower site in Tapajos National Forest, Santarem, Para, Brazil. Data were collected over 3.5 years between June 2000-March 2004. An infra-red gas analyzer sequentially measured the concentration of CO2 at 12 heights (0.1, 0.35, 0.7, 1.4, 3, 6, 10.7, 20, 35, 40, 50, 64 m above the ground) on the tower every 48 minutes. The data, reported on a 30 minute interval, are provided in one single comma separated file.

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?"
