ProfoundData: Downloading and Exploring Data from the PROFOUND Database

Provides an R interface for the PROFOUND database <doi:10.5880/PIK.2019.008>. The PROFOUND database contains a wide range of data to evaluate vegetation models and simulate climate impacts at the forest stand scale. It includes 9 forest sites across Europe, and provides for them a site description as well as soil, climate, CO2, Nitrogen deposition, tree-level, forest stand-level and remote sensing data. Moreover, for a subset of 5 sites, also time series of carbon fluxes, energy balances and soil water are available.
