This data package contains raw sapflow data from the NGEE Tropics K34 tower site on a plateau near Manaus, Brazil. These are mostly raw data from the data loggers, except in the case of the ICT sensors, where the datalogger output was translated using ICT software. One heat ratio sap flow sensor (SFM1, ICT international) was installed per tree. Tree biophysical characteristics for each tree were used with Sap Flow Tool version 1.4.1 (ICT International/Phyto-IT) to calculate sap velocities from raw data downloaded from the SFM1 sap flow sensors in the field. The attached zip file contains six folders: three for data, one for sensor manuals and data collection protocols in PDF format, one for logger configuration programs, and a final folder for metadata files in Excel format. Related metadata is contained in the referenced dataset.
This dataset replaces the sapflow data of two retired packages, http://dx.doi.org/10.15486/ngt/1507764 and http://dx.doi.org/10.15486/ngt/1507767.
One heat ratio sap flow sensor (SFM1, ICT international) was installed per tree near the DBH height (1.30 m). The SFM1 sap flow sensor has three needles inserted parallel to the stem. The needle positioned in the middle is the “heater” and was configured to emit 20 Joules of thermal energy every fifteen minutes. The other two needles, one installed above and another below the heater needle, determine sap velocity (cm/h) at 0.75 cm depth into the xylem using the heat ratio method (Green et al., 2003) and is based on temperature data collected at 3 Hz following the heat pulse (5 min 32 s measurement cycle). Tree biophysical characteristics for each tree were used with Sap Flow Tool version 1.4.1 (ICT International/Phyto-IT) to calculate sap velocities from raw data downloaded from the SFM1 sap flow sensors in the field.
