BOREAS Landsat TM Level-3p Imagery: Geocoded and Scaled At-Sensor Radiance

Data Set Overview

Data setBOREAS Landsat TM Level-3p Imagery: Geocoded and Scaled At-Sensor Radiance
Release date1999-11-12
ProjectBoreal Ecosystem-Atmosphere Study
Time Period1988-08-20 to 1994-07-07


For BOREAS, the level-3p Landsat TM data were used to supplement the level-3s Landsat TM products. Along with the other remotely sensed images, the Landsat TM images were collected in order to provide spatially extensive information over the primary study areas. This information includes radiant energy, detailed land cover, and biophysical parameter maps such as FPAR and LAI. Geographically, the level-3p images cover the BOREAS NSA and SSA. Temporally, the four images cover the period of 20-Aug-1988 to 07-Jun-1994. Except for the 07-Jun-1994 image which contains 7 bands, the other three only contain 3 bands.

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.
