Data Set Overview
|Data set||BOREAS Follow-On DSP-05 Process-Modeled Net Primary Productivity|
|Project||Boreal Ecosystem-Atmosphere Study (BOREAS) Follow On|
The BOREAS DSP-5 team generated a NPP image over the BOREAS region from a process-based ecosystem model, the Boreal Ecosystem Productivity Simulator (BEPS). The NPP image was created from a series of composited AVHRR images from April 11 - September 10, 1994. This document describes how the NPP is generated . The NPP data are stored in a binary image file.

Boreal Ecosystem-Atmosphere Study (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.
