BOREAS ER2 Aircraft Flight Logs

Summary:

During 1994 and 1996, digital and analog imaging instruments mounted on the NASA ER2 aircraft collected various remotely sensed data from the atmosphere and earth's surface as part of the BOReal Ecosystem-Atmosphere Study (BOREAS) Intensive Field Campaigns (IFC). Personnel from the NASA Earth Resources Aircraft Program within the High-altitude Aircraft Branch at NASA Ames Research Center (ARC) compiled and published logs that document the BOREAS ER2 missions. These are standard flight reports that the ARC personnel produced routinely during their tenure.
