Abstract

The International Satellite Land Surface Climatology Project, Initiative II (ISLSCP II) is a follow on project from The International Satellite Land Surface Climatology Project (ISLSCP). ISLSCP II had the lead role in addressing land-atmosphere interactions - process modelling, data retrieval algorithms, field experiment design and execution, and the development of global data sets. The ISLSCP II dataset contains comprehensive data over the 10 year period from 1986 to 1995, from the International Satellite Land Surface Climatology Project (ISLSCP).

This dataset contains:
*Sea-Air CO2 Flux and Sea-Air CO2 Partial Pressure
*CO2 Consumption by Continental Erosion and Riverine Fluxes of Carbon and Sediments to the Oceans
*CO2 Emissions
*Energy Flux Measurement
*Atmospheric CH4 Data
*Atmospheric CO2 Data
*Global Net Primary Productivity

The data are mapped to consistent grids (0.5 x 0.5 degrees for topography, 1 x 1 degrees for meteorological parameters). Some data have a grid size of 0.25 x 0.25 degrees. The temporal resolution for most data sets is monthly (however a few are at finer resolution - 3 hourly). This dataset is public.
