BOREAS TE-18, 30-m, Radiometrically Rectified Landsat TM Imagery

Data Set Overview

Data setBOREAS TE-18, 30-m, Radiometrically Rectified Landsat TM Imagery
Release date2000-09-27
ProjectBoreal Ecosystem-Atmosphere Study
Time Period1984-06-22 to 1994-09-19


The BOREAS TE-18 team used a radiometric rectification process to produce standardized DN values for a series of Landsat TM images of the BOREAS SSA and NSA in order to compare images that were collected under different atmospheric conditions. The images for each study area were referenced to an image that had very clear atmospheric qualities. Each of the reference scenes had coincident atmospheric optical thickness measurements made by RSS-11.

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.
