Summary:

The Boreal Ecosystem-Atmosphere Study (BOREAS) Terrestrial Ecology (TE)-13 team collected data on site characteristics, soil profiles, woody debris, overstory vegetation, and understory vegetation from approximately 100 sites in the Southern Study Area (SSA), Northern Study Area (NSA), and Transect Areas in the boreal forest. This data sets provides 3 reports published by the Canadian Forest Service for the BOREAS project in pdf file format.
