Project: BOREAS FOLLOW-ONProject: BOREAS FOLLOW-ON
The Boreal Ecosystem-Atmosphere Study (BOREAS) Follow-On Project extended and built upon the original BOREAS goal to investigate interactions between the boreal forest biome and the atmosphere in order to clarify their roles in global change. A common set of existing BOREAS in-situ and remote-sensing data were compiled at point, study area, and regional scales for use by Follow-On investigators. Follow-On investigations were integrative, interdisciplinary, and focused on modeling and regional-scale analyses. The development and intercomparison of the various carbon, water, and energy flux models was a major objective. Additional information on the BOREAS Follow-On project is available in the campaign guide document.
Data Set: BOREAS Follow-On FLX-04 Tower Flux and Meteorological Data from NSA Burn SiteData Set: BOREAS Follow-On FLX-04 Tower Flux and Meteorological Data from NSA Burn Site
Tower flux and meteorological data were collected above 4 black spruce forest sites in the NSA that experienced stand-replacing wildfires in 1989,1981,1964 and 1930. At each site, 4-6 weeks of data were collected during the peak growing season (June-September) in either 1999 or 2000. Fluxes were measured using paired portable solar powered eddy flux systems. The data are part of an ongoing age sequence study that will result in year round eddy flux and meteorological measurements in seven sites that burned between 2 and 150 years ago.
