BOREAS TE-05 TREE RING AND CARBON ISOTOPE RATIO DATA
Get Data

Summary:

These data include tree ring widths and cellulose carbon isotope data from coniferous trees collected at the BOREAS NSA and SSA by the BOREAS TE-05 team. Ring width data are provided for both Picea mariana and Pinus banksiana. The carbon isotope data are provided only for Pinus banksiana.

A guide document which includes more information about this data set can be found at http://daac.ornl.gov/boreas/TE/te5treer/comp/TE05_Tree_Ring.txt.

ORNL DAAC maintains information on the entire BOREAS Project.
