Project: BOREASProject: BOREAS
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. BOREAS has available 3 companion files.
Data Set: BOREAS HYD-09 Hourly and Daily Radar Rainfall Maps for the Southern Study AreaData Set: BOREAS HYD-09 Hourly and Daily Radar Rainfall Maps for the Southern Study Area
The BOREAS HYD-09 team collected data on precipitation and streamflow over portions of the NSA and SSA. This data set contains Cartesian maps of rain accumulation for 1-hour and daily periods during the summer of 1994 over the SSA only (not the full view of the radar)
