BOREAS TE-02 STEM GROWTH & SAPWOOD DATA
Get Data

Summary:

The BOREAS TE-02 team collected several data sets in support of its efforts to characterize and interpret information on the respiration of the foliage, roots, and wood of boreal vegetation. This data set contains measurements of growth and sapwood of the stems conducted in the NSA during the growing season of 1994.

A guide document which includes more information about this data set can be found at http://daac.ornl.gov/boreas/TE/te2stsap/comp/TE02_Stem_Sapwood.txt.

ORNL DAAC maintains information on the entire BOREAS Project.
