This data set reports the results of a rainfall exclusion experiment in the Tapajos National Forest (Flona-Tapajos) at km 67 along the Santarem-Cuiaba BR-163 highway. From December 1999 through April 2005, following a one-year pre-treatment phase, rainfall was excluded from one of two 1-hectare plots of seasonally dry humid tropical forest. Soil emissions of carbon dioxide (CO2), nitric oxide (NO), nitrous oxide (N2O), and methane (CH4) were monitored in order to determine the likely effect of increasingly frequent El Nino drought episodes in the Amazon basin. Soil trace gas flux data are provided in one comma-separated data file.
