  • This dataset contains soil respiration data from the Climoor fieldsite in Clocaenog forest, north-east Wales. Measurements began in March 1999 at the field site, and were repeated in approximately bi-weekly intervals until June 2015 (although there are some larger gaps for technical or logistical reasons in this 14 year dataset). The data were collected using 3 different methods/machines over the years: static chambers, soil respiration chamber and Environmental Gas Monitor (EGM)-4 (from PP Systems), and soil respiration chamber and Automated Soil Gas Flux System Li8100 (from Licor Biosciences). The method used is detailed in the data and described further in the supporting documentation. Data was collected by CEH staff and PhD students trained in the use of the different methods / machines. Climoor is a climate change manipulation experiment that utilises automated roof technology to produce drought and warming experimental treatments that reflect climate change predictions for the next 20-30 years.

  • [THIS DATASET HAS BEEN WITHDRAWN]. This dataset contains soil respiration data from the Climoor fieldsite in Clocaenog forest, north-east Wales. Measurements began in March 1999 at the field site, and were repeated in approximately bi-weekly intervals until Oct 2013 (although there are some larger gaps for technical or logistical reasons in this 14 year dataset). The data were collected using 3 different methods/machines over the years: static chambers, soil respiration chamber and EGM-4 (from PP Systems), and soil respiration chamber and Li8100 (from Licor Biosciences). The method used is detailed in the data and described further in the supporting documentation.

  • These data are NERC-funded but not held by the EIDC. These data are archived in the SAFE repository, hosted by Zenodo. This dataset contains calculated greenhouse gas fluxes and associated parameters from 56 static chambers that were installed within the Stability of Altered Forest Ecosystems (SAFE) landscape in Malaysian Borneo. Of the chosen ‘fragment’ in the SAFE design, all chambers were put in the 10 ha fragments. Four chambers each were placed in each of the two 10 ha plots in Logged Fragmented Forest (LFE), Fragment B, and Fragment E resulting in 8 per site. Additionally 12 chambers were installed in a 7-year old oil palm plantation, 8 in a young (2-year) old oil palm and 8 in a 12 – year old oil palm plantations. All 56 chambers were sampled for greenhouse gases (methane, nitrous oxide and carbon dioxide soil respiration) every two months over a two-year period from January 2015 to November 2016, resulting in 12 measurement occasions for each of the chambers. Other environmental parameters were measured during the time of chamber enclosure as possible explanatory variables for correlation with recorded greenhouse gas fluxes including soil and air temperature, soil moisture, soil mineral N (nitrate and ammonium).

  • The dataset contains concentrations of total soil organic carbon, soil carbon fractions, soil CO2 fluxes, soil temperature and moisture in the Peruvian Andes. Measurements and sampling took place between 2010 and 2013. Data were generated as part of a larger NERC project: 'Are tropical uplands regional hotspots for methane and nitrous oxide' Full details about this dataset can be found at https://doi.org/10.5285/3813aef3-71cc-49e6-ba21-495a43363001

  • Data comprises patterns of diversity in a below-ground community of microarthropods (mites and collembola), measured during a nutrient (calcium and nitrogen) manipulation experiment, located at the Natural Environment Research Council (NERC) Soil Biodiversity Site in Sourhope, Scotland, UK. Data collected include abundance of microarthropods, and also microbial biomass carbon, soil respiration, wet pH using de-ionised water, soil loss on ignition, dry root biomass, total carbon and nitrogen content of soil and roots and soil moisture content. The data were collected as a component of the NERC Soil Biodiversity Programme, established in 1999 and centred upon the intensive study of a large field experiment located at the Macaulay Land Use Research Institute (now the James Hutton Institute)'s farm at Sourhope in the Scottish Borders. During this time, the site was monitored to assess changes in aboveground biomass production (productivity), species composition and relative abundance (diversity).
