BOREAS TE-10 Leaf Optical Properties for SSA Species

Data Set Overview

Data setBOREAS TE-10 Leaf Optical Properties for SSA Species
Release date2000-03-24
ProjectBoreal Ecosystem-Atmosphere Study
Time Period1994-05-24 to 1996-07-16


Data collected in support of efforts to characterize and interpret information on the reflectance, transmittance, gas exchange, oxygen evolution, and biochemical properties of boreal vegetation. This data set describes the spectral optical properties (reflectance and transmittance) of boreal forest conifers and broadleaf tree leaves as measured with a Spectron Engineering SE590 spectroradiometer at the SSA OBS, OJP, YJP, OA, OA-AUX, YA-AUX, and YA sites. The data were collected during the growing seasons of 1994 and 1996.

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.
