BOREAS ECMWF 6-hour Analysis and Forecast Data

Data Set Overview

Data setBOREAS ECMWF 6-hour Analysis and Forecast Data
Release date2000-03-24
ProjectBoreal Ecosystem-Atmosphere Study
Time Period1994-01-01 to 1996-12-31


This data set contains parameters from three ECMWF data products -- Surface and Diagnostic Fields, Supplemental Fields, and Extension Data -- from 1994 to 1996. Spatially, the data are stored in a 0.5-by 0.5-degree latitude/longitude grid. To cover the entire BOREAS study area, the grid extends from 48 to 62 degrees latitude and -92 to -114 degrees longitude.

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.
