This dataset contains calculated greenhouse gas fluxes and associated parameters from 56 static chambers that were installed within the Stability of Altered Forest Ecosystems (SAFE) landscape in Malaysian Borneo. Of the chosen ‘fragment’ in the SAFE design, all chambers were put in the 10 ha fragments. Four chambers each were placed in each of the two 10 ha plots in Logged Fragmented Forest (LFE), Fragment B, and Fragment E resulting in 8 per site. Additionally 12 chambers were installed in a 7-year old oil palm plantation, 8 in a young (2-year) old oil palm and 8 in a 12 – year old oil palm plantations. All 56 chambers were sampled for greenhouse gases (methane, nitrous oxide and carbon dioxide soil respiration) every two months over a two-year period from January 2015 to November 2016, resulting in 12 measurement occasions for each of the chambers. Other environmental parameters were measured during the time of chamber enclosure as possible explanatory variables for correlation with recorded greenhouse gas fluxes including soil and air temperature, soil moisture, soil mineral N (nitrate and ammonium).
Provenance & quality
The data were collected using the static chamber method. Gas samples were taken from chambers in the field via syringe and injected into vials for storage and later analysis. Samples were analysed on a gas chromatagraph (GC) in the lab. Concentrations were calculated from GC peak areas, calibrated against standard gases of known concentration. Fluxes were calculated from the concentration change in each chamber by linear regression. Fluxes are expressed as microgrammes per square metre per hour for CH4 and N2O and milligramme per square meter per hour for soil respiration.
