BOREAS HYD-06 MOSS/HUMUS MOISTURE DATA
Get Data

Summary:

This data set contains water content measurements of the moss/humus layer, where it existed. These data were collected along various flight lines in the Southern and Northern Study Areas (SSA and NSA) during 1994.

A guide document which includes more information about this data set can be found at http://daac.ornl.gov/boreas/HYD/h06grmsd/comp/HYD06_GRNDMH.txt.

ORNL DAAC maintains information on the entire BOREAS Project.
