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 Site and Area Geographic Coordinate InformationData Set: BOREAS Site and Area Geographic Coordinate Information
Geographic coordinate and other site information from several sources throughout the experiment period. The final set of information is organized into two data sets that provide geographic coordinate and site characteristic information for single sites and corner coordinates for standard geographic areas.
