Superior National Forest

Overview

waterfall Superior National ForestThe Superior National Forest (SNF) project was an intensive NASA experiment conducted in 1983 - 1984 in a portion of the Superior National Forest near Ely, Minnesota, U.S.A. The study area covered a 50 X 50 km area in northeastern Minnesota at the southern edge of the boreal forest. The purpose of this experiment was to investigate the ability of remote sensing to provide estimates of biophysical properties of ecosystems, such as leaf area index (LAI), biomass, and net primary productivity (NPP).
