BOREAS RSS-07 Landsat TM LAI Images of the SSA and NSA

Data Set Overview

Data setBOREAS RSS-07 Landsat TM LAI Images of the SSA and NSA
Release date1999-11-16
ProjectBoreal Ecosystem-Atmosphere Study
Time Period1991-06-06 to 1994-06-09


The BOREAS RSS-07 team used Landsat TM images processed at CCRS to produce images of LAI for the BOREAS study areas. Two images acquired on June 6 and August 9, 1991 were used for the SSA, and one image acquired on June 9, 1994 was used for the NSA. The LAI images are based on ground measurements and Landsat TM RSR images.

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.
