BOREAS TGB-05 Dissolved Organic Carbon Data from NSA Beaver Ponds


The BOREAS TGB-05 team collected several data sets related to carbon and trace gas fluxes and concentrations in the NSA. This data set contains concentrations of dissolved organic and inorganic carbon species from water samples collected at various NSA sites. In particular, this set covers the NSA Tower Beaver Pond Site and the NSA Gillam Road Beaver Pond Site, including data from all visits to open water sampling locations during the BOREAS field campaigns from April to September 1994.

A guide document which includes more information about this data set can be found at .

ORNL DAAC maintains information on the entire BOREAS Project.
