BOREAS TE-05 SOIL RESPIRATION DATA
Get Data

Summary:

The BOREAS group TE-05 collected measurements in the NSA and SSA on gas exchange, gas composition and tree growth. Soil respiration data collected in the BOREAS NSA and SSA to compare the soil respiration rates in different forest sites using a Li-Cor 6200 soil respiration chamber (model 6299).

A guide document which includes more information about this data set can be found at http://daac.ornl.gov/boreas/TE/te5soilr/comp/TE05_soil_Resp.txt .

ORNL DAAC maintains information on the entire BOREAS Project.
