Project: BOREAS

Project: 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 Level-0 TIMS Imagery: Digital Counts in BIL Format
The TIMS imagery, along with the other remotely sensed images, was collected to provide spatially extensive information over the primary study areas. This information includes detailed land cover, biophysical parameter maps such as fraction of photosynthetically active radiation (fPAR), leaf area index (LAI), and surface thermal properties.
