Data over the SSA in Raster Format and AEAC Projection

Data Set Overview

Data setData over the SSA in Raster Format and AEAC Projection
Release date1999-01-30
ProjectBoreal Ecosystem-Atmosphere Study
Time Period1980-01-01 to 1996-12-31


GIS layers that describe the soils of the BOREAS SSA. Original data were submitted as vector layers that were then gridded by BOREAS staff to a 30-meter pixel size in the AEAC projection.

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.
