BOREAS TE-06 BIOMASS AND FOLIAGE AREA DATA
Get Data

Summary:

The BOREAS TE-06 team collected several data sets in support of its efforts to characterize and interpret information on the plant biomass, allometry, biometry, sapwood, leaf area index, net primary production, soil temperature, leaf water potential, soil CO2 flux, and multivegetation imagery of boreal vegetation. This data set contains measurements of estimates of the standing biomass and leaf area index for the plant species at the TF, CEV, and AUX sites in the SSA and NSA during the growing seasons of 1994 and 1995.

A guide document which includes more information about this data set can be found at http://daac.ornl.gov/boreas/TE/te6bmflg/comp/TE06_Biomass.txt.

ORNL DAAC maintains information on the entire BOREAS Project.
