Carbon Flux to the Atmosphere From Land-use Changes: 1850 to 1990

This report, contributed by R.A. Houghton et al. of Woods Hole Research Center and posted by the Carbon Dioxide Information Analysis Center (CDIAC), contains data consisting of annual estimates of the net flux of carbon between terrestrial ecosystems and the atmosphere resulting from deliberate changes in land cover and land use, especially forest clearing for agriculture and the harvest of wood for wood products or energy. The global net flux during this period was 124 Pg of carbon (1 petagram = 1015 grams), and the greatest regional flux was from South and Southeast Asia (39 Pg of carbon), while the smallest regional flux was from North Africa and the Middle East (3 Pg of carbon). The data are all ASCII format.
