The ORNL DAAC is pleased to announce the release of a data set associated with The BigFoot project:BIGFOOT Meteorological Data for North and South American Sites, 1991-2004. Data set prepared by D.P. Turner, and W.D. Ritts. The BigFoot Project has compiled daily meteorological measurements for nine EOS Land Validation Sites located from Alaska to Brazil from 1991 to 2004. Each site is representative of one or two distinct biomes, including the Arctic tundra; boreal evergreen needleleaf forest; temperate cropland, grassland, evergreen needleleaf forest, and deciduous broadleaf forest; desert grassland and shrubland; and tropical evergreen broadleaf forest.
Additional information about the BigFoot Project and access to other validation products for land cover, leaf area index (LAI), net primary production (NPP), and gross primary production (GPP) may be obtained at BigFoot Project page at the ORNL DAAC [ http://daac.ornl.gov/BIGFOOT_VAL/bigfoot.html ].
The ORNL DAAC is a NASA-funded data center archiving and distributing terrestrial ecology and biogeochemical dynamics data.
