Global carbon budget 2014
Summary: Carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions from human activities (burning fossil fuels and cement production, deforestation and other land-use change) are set to rise again in 2014. This study (updated yearly) makes an accurate assessment of anthropogenic CO2 emissions and their redistribution between the atmosphere, ocean, and terrestrial biosphere in order to better understand the global carbon cycle, support the development of climate policies, and project future climate change.

Mapping hydrological environments in central Amazonia: ground validation and surface model based on SRTM DEM data corrected for deforestation
Summary: This work presents two data sets: a digital elevation model in which deforestation effects were minimized over a large area in Central Amazonia and a set of 18 topographic–hydrological descriptors calculated by the use of the Vertical Distance to the Nearest Drainage algorithm (HAND). We describe the methodology to generate and validate the data sets. Moreover, we present a brief discussion about the applicability of the data to fill the gap of environmental data in Amazonian lowland forests.

A new compilation of stomach content data for commercially important pelagic fish species in the northeast Atlantic
Summary: This work describes a 148-year compilation of stomach content data for five pelagic fish species (herring, blue whiting, mackerel, albacore and bluefin tuna) sampled over a broad geographic region of the northeast Atlantic. We describe the main results in terms of diet composition and predator–prey relationships. The analyses suggests significant differences in the prey items selected by predators in different parts of the area at different times of year.

Lake surface water temperatures of European Alpine lakes (1989–2013) based on the Advanced Very High Resolution Radiometer (AVHRR) 1 km data set
Summary: We were able to demonstrate that data from polar orbiting satellites can be used not only to derive lake water temperature for large lakes (> 500km2) but also for the many lakes like in central Europe which are smaller than 100km2. The linear warming trend derived for one of the lakes shows good agreement between in situ and satellite observations. Thus, this data set will offer the possibility to investigate the impact of climate change on lake water temperatures in central Europe.

ObsPack: a framework for the preparation, delivery, and attribution of atmospheric greenhouse gas measurements
Summary: Observation Package (ObsPack) is a framework designed to bring together atmospheric greenhouse gas measurements from a variety of sampling platforms, prepare them with specific applications in mind, and package and distribute them in a self-consistent and well-documented product. The framework includes a unique distribution stategy designed to improve communication between product users and data providers. The concepts presented are general and may be easily applied to other scientific data.

A high-frequency atmospheric and seawater pCO2 data set from 14 open-ocean sites using a moored autonomous system
Summary: In an effort to track ocean change, sustained ocean observations are becoming increasingly important. Advancements in the ocean carbon observation network over the last decade have dramatically improved our ability to understand how rising atmospheric CO2 and climate change affect the chemistry of the oceans and their marine ecosystems. Here we describe one of those advancements, the MAPCO2 system, and the climate-quality data produced from 14 ocean CO2 observatories.
