Historical and Future Leaching from the Mississippi River Basin

Distribution map of mean dissolved inorganic carbon leaching.

Spatial distribution of mean dissolved inorganic carbon (DIC) leaching (g c/m2/yr) in the 2090s estimated by S(ALL) simulation experiment (including future climate, elevated CO2, and land use changes). Climate change scenarios were derived from three climate models named CCSM3 (panels a and b), ECHAM (c and d), and CCCMA (e and f) under high (A2) and low (B1) emission scenarios, respectively.

New data from the Carbon Monitoring System (CMS) offers insights into how environmental factors affect the dynamics of leaching.

Predicted Annual Soil Respiration from the Carbon Monitoring System

Global map of annual soil respiration.

A global map of predicted annual soil respiration (Rs) at 1 km spatial resolution created by applying the QRF model to gridded covariates. Right is a plot of the latitudinal mean predicted annual Rs.

A machine learning approach was used to derive the predicted annual soil respiration and uncertainty at a 1 km spatial resolution.

Amazonia Forest Canopy Structure from LiDAR

Map of Para, Brazil.

Bounding boxes for LiDAR tiles from surveys over western Para, Brazil, are depicted in Google Earth from the KMZ companion file. Each feature in the KMZ provides key metadata about the corresponding tile.

LiDAR surveys over forest research sites across the Amazon rainforest in Brazil are available.

Carbon Fluxes From US Coastal Wetlands

Estimated CO2e fluxes and confidence interval ranges for the Mississippi River outlet in Louisiana, United States. This area contains palustrine and estuarine wetlands, and includes stable wetlands, wetland gains and loss events from 2006 to 2011. A: Total flux from 2006 to 2011. B. Uncertainty, as represented by confidence interval range (0.975 - 0.025 quantile distributions of the results of the Monte Carlo Analysis). C-E. The relative contributions of soil, biomass, and methane to the total flux (A).

A new dataset provides maps of surface elevation, land cover, biomass, and estimated coastal wetland carbon fluxes.

Seasonality of Photosynthetic Performance

SIF for CLM Simulation Year 2010

Simulated and observed seasonal patterns of canopy SIF (740 nm) for (a, c) absolute SIF and (b, d) normalized canopy SIF for CLM simulation year 2010. Both a satellite SIF product (GOME-2) and the PhotoSpec measurements are included for comparison.

Three related datasets from the Carbon Monitoring System (CMS) program describe year-round photosynthetic activity in a conifer forest.
