BOREAS NS001 TMS Level-0 Images: Digital Counts in BIL Format

Summary:

For BOREAS, the NS001 TMS imagery, along with the other remotely sensed images, was collected in order to provide spatially extensive information over the primary study areas. This information includes detailed land cover and biophysical parameter maps such as fPAR and LAI. Data collections occurred over the study areas during the 1994 field campaigns.Companion files include (1) an image inventory listing to inform users of the images that are available and (2) example thumbnail images.

A guide document which includes more information about this data set can be found at http://daac.ornl.gov/boreas/STAFF/ns001bil/comp/NS001_L0.txt.

ORNL DAAC maintains information on the entire BOREAS Project.
