BOREAS RSS-17 STEM, SOIL, AND AIR TEMPERATURE DATA
Get Data

Summary:

The BOREAS RSS-17 team collected several data sets in support of its research in monitoring and analyzing environmental and phenological states using radar data. This data set consists of tree bole and soil temperature measurements from various BOREAS flux tower sites. Temperatures were measured with thermistors implanted in the hydroconductive tissue of the trunks of several trees at each site and at various depths in the soil. Data were stored on a data logger at intervals of either 1 or 2 hours. The majority of the data were acquired between early 1994 and early 1995. The primary product of this data set is the diurnal stem temperature measurements acquired for selected trees at five BOREAS tower sites.

A guide document which includes more information about this data set can be found at http://daac.ornl.gov/boreas/RSS/rs7ssatd/comp/RSS17_Stem_Temp.txt.

ORNL DAAC maintains information on the entire BOREAS Project.
