BOREAS DERIVED SURFACE METEOROLOGICAL DATA

Summary:

In 1995, the BOREAS science teams identified the need for a continuous surface meteorological and radiation data set to support flux and surface process modeling efforts. This data set contains actual, substituted, and interpolated 15-minute meteorological and radiation data compiled from several surface measurements sites over the BOREAS SSA and NSA. Temporally, the data cover 01-Jan-1994 to 31-Dec-1996.

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

ORNL DAAC maintains information on the entire BOREAS Project.
