BOREAS Level-3S SPOT Imagery: Scaled At-Sensor Radiance in LGSOWG Format

Data Set Overview

Data setBOREAS Level-3S SPOT Imagery: Scaled At-Sensor Radiance in LGSOWG Format
Release date1999-11-16
ProjectBoreal Ecosystem-Atmosphere Study
Time Period1994-04-17 to 1996-08-30


For BOREAS, the level-3s SPOT data, along with the other remotely sensed images,were collected in order to provide spatially extensive information over the primary study areas. This information includes radiant energy, detailed landcover, and biophysical parameter maps such as FPAR and LAI. The SPOT images acquired for the BOREAS project were selected primarily to fill temporal gaps in the Landsat TM image data collection.

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.
