BOREAS TE-11 SURFACE METEOROLOGICAL DATA
Get Data

Summary:

The BOReal Ecosystem-Atmosphere Study (BOREAS) Terrestrial Ecology (TE)-11 team collected several data sets in support of its efforts to characterize and interpret information on the sapflow, gas exchange, and lichen photosynthesis of boreal vegetation and meteorological data of the area studied. This data set contains the meteorological data taken in the BOREAS Southern Study Area (SSA) during 1994 and used by TE-11 for their sapflow and gas exchange data analysis.

A guide document which includes more information about this data set can be found at http://daac.ornl.gov/boreas/TE/te11smet/comp/TE11_Surf_Met.txt.

ORNL DAAC maintains information on the entire BOREAS Project.
