BOREAS SITE AND AREA GEOGRAPHIC COORDINATE INFORMATION
Get Data

Summary:

In an effort to properly document the sites and areas where data were collected, personnel of the BOReal Ecosystem-Atmosphere Study (BOREAS) Information System (BORIS) obtained and compiled geographic coordinate and other site information from several sources throughout the experiment period. The final set of information is organized into two data sets that provide geographic coordinate and site characteristic information for single sites and corner coordinates for standard geographic areas. The data are stored in two text files as American Standard Code for Information Interchange (ASCII) characters.

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

ORNL DAAC maintains information on the entire BOREAS Project.
