The BOREAS TGB-10 team collected several trace gas data sets in their efforts to determine the role of biogenic hydrocarbon emissions with respect to boreal forest carbon cycles. This data set contains measured peroxide (H2O2 and total organic peroxides (ROOH)) and ozone concentrations as well as, H2O2 and ROOH deposition velocities. These data were obtained at the SSA Old Jack Pine site from May to September 1994.

A guide document which includes more information about this data set can be found at

ORNL DAAC maintains information on the entire BOREAS Project.
