Northern Study Area - Old Jack Pine Site (NSA-OJP)

The Old Jack Pine site contained a large flux tower, an SRC AMS (met) tower, and many other instruments. It also had a Terrestrial Ecology (TE) tower that topped out in the canopy of large pine trees. This allowed researchers to take samples from within the canopy, and to make measurements using the living trees themselves. View an aerial photo-map of the NSA-OJP site.

The NOAA RASS Doppler Radar/Lidar

Near the NSA-OJP site was the NOAA RASS Doppler radar/lidar, run by AFM-6. It measured profiles of wind, turbulence quantities, and temperature as functions of time. The radar also measured the structure of clouds overhead.
