BOREAS Release, Oct. 15

Six new data sets from the Boreal Ecosystem-Atmosphere Study (BOREAS) were released by the ORNL DAAC on October 15, 1999. The release brings the total number to 186 data sets currently available.

The newest data are related to hydrology, remote sensing, and background measurements (called "staff science"):

BOREAS was an intensive remote-sensing and field study of a Canadian boreal forest. Investigators measured exchanges of energy, water, heat, carbon dioxide, and trace gases between the forest and the atmosphere from 1993 to 1996.
