Half-hourly Eddy Covariance fluxes, gap-filled meteorological variables, precipitation and remotely sensed plant cover estimations from NAMORS between 2005 and 2020

This file contains the datasets used in an upcoming submission to JGR Biogeosciences by: Nieberding, F., Wille, C., Ma, Y., Wang, Y., Maurischat, P., Lehnert, L. and Sachs, T.: Winter daytime warming and shift in summer monsoon increase plant cover and net CO2 uptake in central Tibetan alpine steppe ecosystem. The manuscript contains all the details on how the data was generated and processed and the corresponding code will be published in the supplementary material. The data should not be used until the manuscript has been peer-reviewed and is finally published by the journal.

File naming and required software

The file "df_EP.csv" contains the processed half-hourly EddyPro full_output (https://www.licor.com/env/support/EddyPro/topics/output-files-full-output.html) and biomet data between 2005 and 2019.
The file "df_meteo_gf.csv" contains half hourly meteorological variables from NAMORS between 2005 and 2019, which have been gap filled using annual linear regression with the same variables from different measurement heigths.
The file "df_precipitation_NamCo_2005-2019.csv" contains daily precipitation measurements from NAMORS between 2005 and 2019.
The file" variable_description.csv" contains the variable descriptions and physical units for the above mentioned datasets.
The file "subset_plantcover.nc" contains an array of annual plant cover estimates applying the pre-trained support vector machine regression (SVM) models published in Lehnert et al. (2015) to to multispectral satellite data acquired by Landsat 5, 7, and 8 at 30 m spatial resolution between 2005 and 2020.
