BOREAS TF-11 SSA-FEN 1995 LEAF AREA INDEX DATA
Get Data

Summary:

The BOREAS TF-11 team gathered a variety of data to complement their tower flux measurements collected at the SSA Fen site. These data are LAI measurements made by the TF-11 team throughout the 1995 growing season. The data include the LAI of plants that fall into six categories: total, Carex spp., Betula pumila, Menyanthes trifoliata, Salix spp., and other vascular plants.

A guide document which includes more information about this data set can be found at http://daac.ornl.gov/boreas/TF/tf11lai/comp/TF11_LAI.txt.

ORNL DAAC maintains information on the entire BOREAS Project.
