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 TF-01 SSA-OA Soil Characteristics DataData Set: BOREAS TF-01 SSA-OA Soil Characteristics Data
Data collected in support of the effort to characterize and interpret soil information at the SSA-OA tower site in 1994. Data collected include soil respiration, temperature, moisture, and gravimetric data.
