Dataset Abstract:

Results are described of a forest clearing experiment conducted in Tomé Açu,Pará, Brazil. An area of 3 ha of virgin forest was cut in July 1994 and left to dry until October of the same year, when fire was set. Post burning was also performed 30 days after the main fire. The test location biomass content per hectare was measured by indirect methods using formulas with parameters of forest inventories. The carbon content of several biomass compartments was determined in a CHN analyser. The combustion completeness was estimated by selecting ten 2X2 m2 areas and 24 large trunks and examining their consumption rates by fire.
