This dataset contributes to a better understanding of the influence of atmospheric aerosols on the functioning of Brazilian Amazon ecosystems, particularly on the Net Ecosystem Exchange (NEE). The radiative effects of aerosols and clouds (from the emitted by Biomass Burning ), until then unknown for a wide variety of species and vegetation types present in the Amazon Basin, have been evaluated through CO2 flux tower systems and meteorological data in the Amazon biomes. Our data allowed us to examine the radiative effects of atmospheric aerosols on solar radiation and its impacts on the Net Ecosystem Exchange (NEE) of an area of semi-deciduous tropical forest located in the south of the Amazon basin in the north of the state of Mato Thick. The data for the development of this research will be made available soon on the AmericFlux website (https://ameriflux.lbl.gov). All the data collected are under the citation: Vourlitis, George (2011), Spatial and temporal variations in aboveground woody carbon storage for cerrado forests and woodlands of Mato Grosso, Brazil. Here, the dataset contains: (1) Net Ecosystem Exchange (NEE of CO2); from the turbulent covariance system (eddy-covariance); and (2) meteorological data, both collected between June 2005 and July 2008.
