The data acquisition server allows real-time monitoring of all data streams, whereas the two functions of the data server are to archive data and enable visualization and publishing. The data model used for Biosphere 2 data was developed and implemented as a relational database SensorDB.
Biosphere 2 was intended to be a tool for the scientific community. Researchers that have interests in performing experiments at the Biosphere 2 or use collected datasets are encouraged to contact Biosphere 2 affiliates to discuss potential collaborative opportunities. For more details see the Biosphere 2 Data Policy.
The Landscape Evolution Observatory (LEO) sensor description, computations and additional datasets are available from the Biosphere 2 Research Wiki.
Available datasets and live data streams from the LEO east, center, west and mini slopes, and ambient indoor and outdoor data can be viewed and downloaded at:
