BOREAS TF-01 SSA-OA SOIL CHARACTERISTICS DATA
Get Data

Summary:

The BOREAS TF-01 team collected several data sets in support of its efforts to characterize and interpret soil information at the SSA-OA tower site in 1994 as part of BOREAS. Data sets collected include soil respiration, temperature, moisture, and gravimetric data.

A guide document which includes more information about this data set can be found at http://daac.ornl.gov/boreas/TF/tf01soil/comp/TF01_Soils.txt.

ORNL DAAC maintains information on the entire BOREAS Project.
