BOREAS AFM-03 ELECTRA 1994 AIRCRAFT FLUX AND MOVING WINDOW DATA
Get Data

Summary:

The BOREAS AFM-03 team used the NCAR Electra aircraft data to make measurements of the fluxes of momentum, sensible and latent heat, carbon dioxide, and ozone over the entire BOREAS region to tie together measurements made in both the SSA and the NSA. These data were also used to study the planetary boundary layer using both in situ and remote sensing measurements. This data set contains both the aircraft flux and the moving window data.

A guide document which includes more information about this data set can be found at http://daac.ornl.gov/boreas/AFM/afm3mw94/comp/AFM03_AC_Flux.txt.

ORNL DAAC maintains information on the entire BOREAS Project.
