Pre-LBA FLUAMAZON Experiment Data

Data Set Overview

Data setPre-LBA FLUAMAZON Experiment Data
Release date2008-10-31
ProjectLarge Scale Biosphere-Atmosphere
Time Period1989-11-23


The FLUAMAZON Experiment data set includes meteorological data collected with radiosondes to examine the moisture flux from the northern coast of South America (near the mouth of the Amazon River) into central Amazonia. The measurements were collected from November 23, to December 21, 1989 during the period of transition between the dry and humid seasons in the region. Some of the studies performed with data from FLUAMAZON were related to the atmospheric thermodynamic structure over Amazonia. During FLUAMAZON, radiosonde measurements were made simultaneously in five different locations: Alcantara, Belem, Oiapoque, Manaus, and Alta Floresta. ASCII text data files for each location have been compiled and compressed into site-specific zipped files.

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?"
