BOREAS TE-12 INCOMING PAR THROUGH THE FOREST CANOPY DATA
Get Data

Summary:

The BOREAS TE-12 team collected PAR data sets in support of its efforts to characterize and interpret information on shoot geometry, leaf optical properties, leaf water potential, and leaf gas exchange. The data were collected at the SSA-OBS site from 04-Jul-1996 to 25-Jul-1996.

A guide document which includes more information about this data set can be found at http://daac.ornl.gov/boreas/TE/te12parc/comp/TE12_Canopy_PAR.txt.

ORNL DAAC maintains information on the entire BOREAS Project.
