Project: Boreal Ecosystem-Atmosphere StudyProject: 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. Boreal Ecosystem-Atmosphere Study has available 3 companion files.
Data Set: BOREAS RSS-18 Sunphotometer Data over the SSAData Set: BOREAS RSS-18 Sunphotometer Data over the SSA
Ground-based sunphotometer data collected in support of AVIRIS remote sensing activities at the SSA. The following information was compiled by staff members of the BOReal Ecosystem-Atmosphere Study (BOREAS)Information System (BORIS) as part of their data documentation efforts.
