Summary
Abstract: [Summary adopted from db1015 documentation]

This database contains global, spatially explicit (0.5 degree grid
cells) and temporally explicit (monthly and annual) model output of
soil CO2 emissions. The calculated emissions include the respiration of
both soil organisms and plant roots. A map of the soil emissions is
available as a soil.ps file.

Quality QA performed by CDIAC One of the roles of the Carbon Dioxide
Information Analysis Center (CDIAC) is quality assurance (QA) of
data. The QA process is an important component of the value-added
concept of assuring accurate, usable information for researchers,
because data received by CDIAC are rarely in condition for immediate
distribution, regardless of source.
