Description

A Landsat-5 TM image from 06-Aug-1990 was used to derive this classification, the objective of which is to provide BOREAS investigators with a data product that characterizes the land cover of the SSA. A standard supervised maximum likelihood classification approach was used to produce this classification.

Project

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.
