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.

The base of a research tower in the south study area in the boreal forest. The towers continuously measured the radiation, carbon, heat, water, in some cases CH4 and other trace gas fluxes of the area. The information used helped researchers understand the interactions between boreal the boreal forest and the atmosphere. Project BOREAS-CANADA. 1993-1996.
