  • A set of 130 digital precipitation maps of the tropical Andes, covering Colombia, Ecuador and Peru at a 5km resolution. The maps represent different realizations of mean precipitation totals of the period 1981-2010 using different satellite-gauge merging methods. The work draws on a large database of 723 rain gauges and the full 5km Tropical Rainfall Measuring Mission (TRMM) Precipitation Radar (TPR) record from 1998 to 2014. Each map is approximately 1MB Full details about this dataset can be found at https://doi.org/10.5285/74a588cc-723c-4a35-ac0c-223f5b92ee36

  • The research team collected data on soil-atmosphere exchange of trace gases and environmental variables during four field campaigns (two wet seasons, two dry seasons) the lowland tropical peatland forests of the Pastaza-Marañón foreland basin in Peru. The campaigns took place over a 27 month period, extending from February 2012 to May 2014. This dataset contains measurements from field sampling of soil-atmosphere fluxes concentrated on 4 dominant vegetation types in the lowland tropical peatland forests of the Pastaza-Marañón foreland basin. Vegetation types included; forested vegetation, forested [short pole] vegetation, Mauritia flexuosa-dominated palm swamp, and mixed palm swamp. They were measured at 5 different sites in Peru including; Buena Vista, Miraflores, San Jorge, Quistococha, and Charo. Greenhouse gas (GHG) fluxes were captured from both floodplain systems and nutrient-poor bogs in order to account for underlying differences in biogeochemistry that may arise from variations in hydrology. Parameters include methane and nitrous oxide fluxes, air/soil temperatures, soil pH, soil electrical conductivity, soil dissolved oxygen content, and water table depth. See documentation and data lineage for data quality. These data were collected in support of the NERC project: Amazonian peatlands - A potentially important but poorly characterised source of atmospheric methane and nitrous oxide (NE/I015469/2)

  • 'Amazonian peatlands - A potentially important but poorly characterised source of atmospheric methane and nitrous oxide' was a NERC (Natural Environment Research Council) funded project from 2013-2014 with the following grant reference: NE/I015469/2. This dataset collection contains measurements from field sampling of soil-atmosphere fluxes concentrated on 4 dominant vegetation types in the lowland tropical peatland forests of the Pastaza-Marañón foreland basin. Vegetation types included; forested vegetation, forested [short pole] vegetation, Mauritia flexuosa-dominated palm swamp, and mixed palm swamp. Greenhouse gas (GHG) fluxes were captured from both floodplain systems and nutrient-poor bogs in order to account for underlying differences in biogeochemistry that may arise from variations in hydrology. Sampling was conducted during four field campaigns (two wet season, two dry season) over a 27-month period, extending from February 2012 to May 2014.

  • 'Are tropical uplands regional hotspots for methane and nitrous oxide?' was a NERC (Natural Environment Research Council) funded project from 2010-2015 with the following grant references NE/H007849/1, NE/H006753/1 and NE/H006583/2. This dataset collection contains in-situ ground based soil-atmosphere flux and soil condition measurements from 4 different ecosystems located in the Peruvian Andes over ~2.5 years between 2010-2013. The ecosystems included upper montane forest (Wayqecha), lower montane forest (San Pedro), premontane forest (Villa Carmen) and grassland sites. At present, data are only available for 3 ecosystems; Wayqecha, San Pedro and Villa Carman. However, the grassland dataset will follow shortly along with some model output.

  • Data from two small streams, two rivers and rainfall fractions in the Western Amazonian basin at Tambopata National Reserve in Madre de Dios region, Peru. Data presented are nutrients (calcium, magnesium, potassium, sodium, total soluble phosphorus and silica) and fluvial carbon - dissolved inorganic carbon (DIC) and its isotopic composition δ13C-DIC, dissolved organic carbon (DOC) and particulate organic carbon (POC). Samples were collected during the period from February 2011 to May 2012 targeting both wet and dry seasons. Samples for DIC samples were collected using pre-acidified evacuated Exetainers. Established standard methods were used to take samples for DOC and nutrients. Established standard methods were used to analyse samples for DIC, DOC and nutrients These methods are outlined in the lineage. The samples were taken to understand the hydrological controls on the carbon concentrations and fluxes during different flow conditions. The data collection was carried out as part of the Natural Environment Research Council funded Amazonica project.
