LBA-ECO LC-14 Biophysical Measurements, Rainfall Exclusion, Tapajos National Forest

This data set reports forest biophysical measurements from a rainfall exclusion experiment conducted at the km 67 Seca Floresta site, Tapajos National Forest, Brazil from 1998 to 2006. The purpose was to observe the potential effects of severe water stress on a humid Amazonian forest (Nepstad 2002). Data are reported for stem inventory, tree diameter at breast height (DBH) and height, dendrometer measurements of tree diameter growth increments, canopy density, leaf area index (LAI), and coarse and fine litter mass.The measurements were made monthly from September 28, 1998 through November 10, 2006. There are six comma-delimited data files (.csv), and one text file (.txt) with this data set.
