Saskatchewan Forest Fire Control Centre Surface Meteorological Data

Summary:

The Saskatchewan Forest Fire Control Centre (SFFCC) provided surface meteorological data to BOREAS from their archive. This data set contains hourly surface meteorological data from 18 of the meteorological stations located across Saskatchewan. Included in this data are parameters of date, time, temperature, relative humidity, wind direction, wind speed and precipitation. Temporally, the data cover the period of May through September of 1994 and 1995.

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

ORNL DAAC maintains information on the entire BOREAS Project.
