The Oak Ridge National Laboratory Distributed Active Archive Center (ORNL DAAC) for biogeochemical dynamics is one of the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) Earth Observing System Data and Information System (EOSDIS) data centers managed by the Earth Science Data and Information System (ESDIS) Project. The ORNL DAAC archives data produced by NASA's Terrestrial Ecology Program. The DAAC provides data and information relevant to biogeochemical dynamics, ecological data, and environmental processes, critical for understanding the dynamics relating to the biological, geological, and chemical components of Earth's environment.

An aircraft is deploying sounding lidars and radars as well as measuring turbulent fluxes for project BOREAS-CANADA. This groupís objectives were to understand the evolution of the atmospheric boundary layer and the boundary layer fluxes of heat, latent heat, momentum, and CO2 and also to study and document the processes that link such fluxes from the local scale to the regional scale represented by the forest ecozone. 1994.
