Advancing the science of greenhouse gas mitigation through a multi-national research effort facilitated by the Global Research Alliance

By employing a user-friendly spreadsheet template, MAGGnet seeks to compile metadata from experimental sites throughout the world where greenhouse gas fluxes and soil carbon dynamics are monitored.  Priority is given to sites with published data.

Since 2012, MAGGnet has compiled metadata from over 380 experimental sites from 23 countries.  Metadata contributors include scientists engaged in the Croplands Research Group and its networks, and the Paddy Rice Research Group of the GRA.

MAGGnet Sites

Experimental sites currently included in MAGGnet can be viewed through an ArcView GIS webmap.  Sites in the webmap may be viewed in aggregate or by crop type.  Selection of the ‘Show Table’ feature will display associated metadata for experimental sites.

Please note that the ArcView webmap and experimental site metadata may load slowly, depending on the speed of your internet connection.

Concurrent to the download of MAGGnet files, a courtesy email to the MAGGnet Coordinator would be greatly appreciated ([email protected]).  Doing so will facilitate accurate record keeping of downloaded files and provide a conduit to more easily assist with potential questions associated with the network.
