The data are concentrations of different fluvial carbon species (dissolved inorganic carbon, dissolved organic carbon and particulate organic carbon) which form part of the lateral transport of carbon from the terrestrial to aquatic system. This influences the terrestrial carbon balance as well as being a key part of the freshwater carbon cycle. The submission also contains hydrological (stage height, discharge and water temperature) and water chemistry data (pH, conductivity and oxygen saturation). The data were collected from Peruvian rainforest streams within the NERC funded Amazonica project (NE/F005482/1).

This dataset is part of the following
Fluvial carbon data was collect in two rainforest streams during three field campaigns targeting different seasons 2011-2012. Hydrology and water chemistry was continuously measured in these streams using dataloggers. Stage height was related to campaign flow velocity measurements to derive a continuous discharge record.
