Dataset Information

Site ID: BR-Ma2

Site Name: Manaus - ZF2 K34

Variables: Leaf temperature

Date Range: Feb. 15, 2015 - March 16, 2017

Description: Raw leaf surface temperature data from K34 tower site on a plateau near Manaus, Brazil including automated and manually collected time series data on leaf surface temperature (thermocouples, IR radiometer, thermocamera). Leaf surface temperature (LST) is determined throughout diurnal periods using individual type T thermocouples (Omega Engineering) on 8 individual leaves of a single tree. Mature leaves at the same height and general area near the tower are selected. LST measurements every 15 s are recorded on a field portable self-powered data logger (OM-CP-OCTTEMP-A, Omega Engineering). Measurements are stopped in the case of a storm or rain which can remove the attached thermocouple wires from the leaf due to large wind-driven branch movements. See dataset references for associated metadata package. This dataset replaces the leaf surface temperature data of two retired packages, http://dx.doi.org/10.15486/ngt/1507764 and http://dx.doi.org/10.15486/ngt/1507767
