Abstract: [Summary adopted from NDP-081 documentation]

We used a climate-driven regression model to develop spatially
resolved estimates of soil-CO2 emissions from the terrestrial land
surface for each month from January 1980 to December 1994, to evaluate
the effects of interannual variations in climate on global
soil-to-atmosphere CO2 fluxes. The mean annual global ... View entire text

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.
