LBA-ECO ND-02 Soil Trace Gas Fluxes in Eastern Amazonia, Para, Brazil: 1999-2003

This data set reports the results of a study to quantify the effects of moisture and substrate availability on soil trace gas fluxes in a regrowth forest in Eastern Amazonia, Apeu, Para, Brazil, from 1999-2003. The efflux of carbon dioxide (CO2), nitric oxide (NO), nitrous oxide (N2O), and methane (CH4) from soil was measured as a response to (1) increased soil moisture availability during the dry season by irrigation and (2) decreased substrate availability by continuous removal of aboveground litter and compared to (3) untreated control plots. Soil gas fluxes are reported in one comma-separated data file.
