The ORNL DAAC announces the release of 6 datasets from four science themes. These science research themes are components of the LBA-ECO Large Scale Biosphere-Atmosphere Experiment in Amazonia (LBA).

Carbon Dynamics:

LBA-ECO CD-08 Tree Diameter Measurements, Jacaranda Plots, Manaus, Brazil: 1999-2001, http://daac.ornl.gov/cgi-bin/dsviewer.pl?ds_id=1194

Land Use and Land Cover:

LBA-ECO LC-14 Biophysical Measurements, Rainfall Exclusion, Tapajos National Forest, http://daac.ornl.gov/cgi-bin/dsviewer.pl?ds_id=1196

Nutrient Dynamics:

LBA-ECO ND-01 Georegistered Landsat Imagery for Rondonia, Brazil: 1975-2000, http://daac.ornl.gov/cgi-bin/dsviewer.pl?ds_id=1197

LBA-ECO ND-01 Landsat 28.5-m Land Cover Time Series, Rondonia, Brazil: 1984-2010, http://daac.ornl.gov/cgi-bin/dsviewer.pl?ds_id=1165

Trace Gases:

LBA-ECO TG-05 NPP, Carbon Pool, Soil Characteristics, Soil Gas Flux Maps of Brazil, http://daac.ornl.gov/cgi-bin/dsviewer.pl?ds_id=1199

LBA-ECO TG-10 Fire Emission Factors in Mato Grosso, Para, and Amazonas, Brazil: 2004, http://daac.ornl.gov/cgi-bin/dsviewer.pl?ds_id=1195

LBA was an international research initiative under the leadership of Brazil. The project focused on the climatological, ecological, biogeochemical, and hydrological functions of Amazonia; the impact of land use change on these functions; and the interactions between Amazonia and the Earth system. The LBA-ECO component, which was funded by NASA, focused 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? "

The ORNL DAAC is a NASA-funded data center archiving and distributing terrestrial ecology and biogeochemical dynamics data.
