Smallman, Thomas Luke; Williams, Mathew. (2021). CARDAMOM Kenyan C-cycle analysis (0.25 degree, monthly, 2014-2017): Forest and savannah specific, 2014-2017 [dataset]. National Centre for Earth Observation; School of GeoSciences. University of Edinburgh. https://doi.org/10.7488/ds/2993.
This dataset contains two netCDF file reporting terrestrial C-cycle analysis of Kenya at 0.25 x 0.25 degree spatial and monthly temporal resolutions for 2014 to 2017. One analysis specifically focused on forested land of Kenya, the other analysis focused on savannah land. The analysis uses the CARDAMOM model-data fusion framework to retrieve information on Kenya's terrestrial C-cycle uncertainty uniquely for each location based on location and time specific observations and their uncertainties. The files contains pixel-level estimates of C storage (plant tissues and dead organic matter), C fluxes (photosynthesis, respiration, fire emissions), allocation of C to plant tissues and their residence times. All variables include uncertainty information reporting the 2.5 %, 25 %, 50 %, 75 % and 97.5% quantiles.
