To provide each of the datasets required by WP2,WP3 and WP4.
Select suitable sites for validation of the TEMs from the full list of
those involved in the CARBOEUROPE cluster and related projects. These
sites should cover a wide range of biomes (boreal forest, tropical
forest, deciduous forest, temperate grassland, tropical grassland,
croplands), but will otherwise be selected based on the length and
continuity of measurements. Any breaks in the meteorological data from
the selected sites will be filled using standard techniques (e.g. neural
Existing datasets of historical land-use and nitrogen deposition for
the period 1900-2000 will be formatted for use WP3.
Existing data from forest inventories and agricultural production will
be used to prepare maps of the changes of European carbon stocks between
1960 and 1990.
Satellite datasets of landcover, fAPAR and stand density/canopy
structure will be prepared for Europe, and other key forest areas.
