GiFACE - Climate predictors and aboveground biomasses for the period 1998 to 2015.

Wolfgang Obermeier
This dataset contains the predictor and dependent variables for the prediction of C3 grassland biomass productivity based on potential future climate regimes. The data was collected at the Giessen Free Air Carbon Enrichment (GiFACE) experiment. All variables are named according to the article "Reduced summer aboveground productivity in temperate C3 grasslands under future climate regimes". All climate predictor values are aggregated within 90 days prior to each September harvest. Aboveground biomasses are treatment-wise averaged.

Fog frequencies in Europe (averaged over GWSs)

Sebastian Egli
This dataset contains fog frequencies for Europe averaged over all 30 GWSs (general weather situations) after Hess & Brezowsky. Time period covered: 2006-01-01 to 2015-12-31

A description of the data can be found in this paper:

DTM 1m (derived from LiDAR survey)

Brenner Silva, Joerg Zeilinger & Thomas Lotz
This Digital Terrain Model (DTM) is created using linear interpolation applied on ground-class points of the LiDAR data. The helicopter-based survey of the Rio San Francisco catchment has been conducted in the periods of March 7-17, 2012 and November 12-19, 2012. Coordinate System UTM, Datum WGS84, Zone 17S, and Geoid EGM96 - for orthometric height - are used. The horizontal accuracy is within 5cm (based on control landmark of the IGM geodetic network). Quality assurance...

Canopy soil CO2, CH4 and N2O flux NUMEX

Amanda Matson
Measurements of gas flux (CO2, CH4, N2O) in canopy soils of NUMEX plots on four dates (Sept/Nov 2011 and Jan/April 2012). Measurements were taken in 3 of the 4 NUMEX blocks at each elevation; treatments measured included C, N, NP and P.

Longterm time series of the Giessen Free Air Carbon Enrichment experiment (GiFACE) experiment

Wolfgang Obermeier
Within the experiment, a permanent temperate grassland is treated with elevated CO2 (~20% during daylight hours). In three rings the air is enriched with CO2 while other three rings act under atmospheric CO2 (control). This dataset contains the ring-wise late-summer yields as well as the ring-wise CO2 concentrations (averaged in the three months before harvest) and other variables describing the environmental conditions (likewise aggregated to their average in the three months preceding harvest; respectively sum...

Bird species abundance in the San Francisco Valley

Christine Wallis & Detlev Paulsch
Bird species (elevational gradient: 1800-2530m) occurrence and abundance has been collected by a trained observer in 30 forest sites in the study area under favorable weather conditions at 6:00–10:00 and 16:00–18:00 (UTC ?5:00) between 2000 and 2002 (Paulsch and Müller-Hohenstein, 2008). Standardized point counts (30 min) were repeated 12 times per site and combined with mist-netting data to comprehensively assess the bird assemblages.
