BOREAS TF-11 DECOMPOSITION DATA OVER THE SSA-FEN
Get Data

Summary:

The BOREAS TF-11 team collected several data sets in their efforts to fully describe the flux and site characteristics at the SSA-Fen site. This data set contains decomposition rates of a standard substrate (wheat straw) across treatments. The measurements were conducted as part of a 2x2 factorial experiment in which we added carbon (300 g m-2 as wheat straw) and nitrogen (6 g m-2 as urea) to four replicate locations in the vicinity of the TF-11 tower.

A guide document which includes more information about this data set can be found at http://daac.ornl.gov/boreas/TF/tf11dcom/comp/TF11_Decomp.txt.

ORNL DAAC maintains information on the entire BOREAS Project.
