The ORNL DAAC now offers a 12-volume CD-ROM set of compiled measurement data and selected image data from the Boreal Ecosystem-Atmosphere Study (BOREAS), conducted from 1993 to 1996.

In addition, Compact Airborne Spectrographic Imager (CASI) data for BOREAS are available on-line. During selected periods in 1994 and 1996, CASI was used for observing seasonal changes in the radiometric reflectance properties of the boreal forest landscape. The CASI images are in the Remote Sensing Science holdings within BOREAS.

BOREAS was an intensive remote-sensing and field study of a Canadian boreal forest. Investigators measured exchanges of energy, water, heat, carbon dioxide, and trace gases between the forest and the atmosphere.
