Data Set Overview

Data setBOREAS RSS-14 GOES-7 Level-1 Visible, Infrared, and Water Vapor Images
Release date1999-11-16
ProjectBoreal Ecosystem-Atmosphere Study
Time Period1994-01-04 to 1995-07-08


The level-1 BOREAS GOES-7 image data were collected by Remote Sensing Science Team 14 (RSS-14) personnel at Florida State University (FSU) and delivered to BORIS. The data cover the period of 01-Jan-1994 through 08-Jul-1995, with partial to complete coverage on the majority of the days. The data include three bands with eight-bit pixel values.

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.
