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 RSS-08 Snow Maps Derived from Landsat TM Imagery
The BOREAS RSS-08 team utilized Landsat TM images to perform mapping of snow extent over the SSA. This data set consists of two Landsat TM images which were used to determine the snow-covered pixels over the BOREAS SSA on 18-Jan-1993 and on 06-Feb-1994.
