This data set provides Boreal Ecosystem-Atmosphere Study (BOREAS) project information and data collected at selected sites in the boreal forest of Saskatchewan and Manitoba, Canada from 1993 through 1996. The data include surface, airborne, and satellite-based observations. Note that all of the data products on these CDs have been archived as separate BOREAS data sets by the ORNL DAAC and in many cases the published data are later versions. Users should search for BOREAS data among these individual data sets. These data were originally distributed on 12 CD-ROMs, but are now archived as 12 zip files to ensure historical completeness of the BOREAS data record.

Boreal Ecosystem-Atmosphere Study: The Boreal Ecosystem-Atmosphere Study was a large-scale international interdisciplinary experiment in the boreal forests of central Canada. Its focus was improving our understanding of the exchanges of radiative energy, sensible heat, water, CO2 and trace gases between the boreal forest and the lower atmosphere. A primary objective of BOREAS was to collect the data needed to improve computer simulation models of the important processes controlling these exchanges so that scientists can anticipate the effects of global change, principally altered temperature and precipitation patterns, on the biome.
