BOREAS TF-01 SSA-OA UNDERSTORY FLUX, METEOROLOGICAL, AND SOIL TEMPERATURE DATA
Get Data

Summary:

The BOREAS TF-01 team collected energy, carbon dioxide, and momentum flux data under the canopy along with meteorological and soils data at the BOREAS SSA-OA site from mid-October to mid-November of 1993 and throughout all of 1994.

A guide document which includes more information about this data set can be found at http://daac.ornl.gov/boreas/TF/tf01uflx/comp/TF01_UnderCanopy_Flux.txt.

ORNL DAAC maintains information on the entire BOREAS Project.
