Project: BOREASProject: BOREAS
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. BOREAS has available 3 companion files.
Data Set: BOREAS TE-20 Soils Data over the NSA-MSA and Tower Sites in Vector FormatData Set: BOREAS TE-20 Soils Data over the NSA-MSA and Tower Sites in Vector Format
Vector layers of soil maps. The vector layers were converted to ARC/INFO EXPORT files. These data cover 1-km diameters around each of the NSA tower sites and another layer covers the NSA-MSA.
