Get Data

Summary:

The BOREAS TE-20 team collected several data sets for use in developing and testing models of forest ecosystem dynamics. This data set contains measurements of site characteristics conducted in the SSA from 18-Jul-1994 to 30-Jul-1994.

A guide document which includes more information about this data set can be found at http://daac.ornl.gov/boreas/TE/te20site/comp/TE20_Site_Char.txt.

ORNL DAAC maintains information on the entire BOREAS Project.
