BOREAS TF-01 SSA-OA WEEKLY TOWER CH4 AND N2O FLUX
Get Data

Summary:

The BOREAS TF-01 team collected various trace gas and energy flux data in its efforts to characterize the temporal energy and gas exchanges that occurred over the SSA-OA site. This data set contains methane (CH4) and nitrous oxide (N2O) fluxes that were measured at the BOREAS SSA-OA site. These fluxes were measured from 16-Apr to 16-Sep-1994.

A guide document which includes more information about this data set can be found at http://daac.ornl.gov/boreas/TF/tf1ch4/comp/TF01_CH4_N2O_Flux.txt.

ORNL DAAC maintains information on the entire BOREAS Project.
