BOREAS RSS-14 Level-3 Gridded Radiometer and Satellite Surface Radiation Images

Data Set Overview

Data setBOREAS RSS-14 Level-3 Gridded Radiometer and Satellite Surface Radiation Images
Release date1999-11-16
ProjectBoreal Ecosystem-Atmosphere Study
Time Period1994-05-16


The BOREAS RSS-14 team collected and processed GOES-7 and -8 images of the BOREAS region as part of their effort to characterize the incoming, reflected and emitted radiation at regional scales. This data set contains surface radiation parameters, such as net radiation and net solar radiation, that have been interpolated from GOES-7 images and AMS data onto the standard BOREAS mapping grid at a resolution of 5 km N-S and E-W.

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.
