The Oak Ridge National Laboratory Distributed Active Archive Center (ORNL DAAC) for biogeochemical dynamics is one of the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) Earth Observing System Data and Information System (EOSDIS) data centers managed by the Earth Science Data and Information System (ESDIS) Project. The ORNL DAAC archives data produced by NASA's Terrestrial Ecology Program. The DAAC provides data and information relevant to biogeochemical dynamics, ecological data, and environmental processes, critical for understanding the dynamics relating to the biological, geological, and chemical components of Earth's environment.

The OJP tower at the Southern Old Jack Pine site in the south study area. The tower was linked by cables to a thinner truss tower 100 meters away. An under-canopy radiation sensor was also mounted on a movable cart on a track running under the trees. Another large canopy access tower allowed scientists to get direct access to the canopy for experiments. Project BOREAS-CANADA. 1993-1996.
