The ORNL DAAC recently released six additional data sets from the Boreal Ecosystem-Atmosphere Study (BOREAS). The newest data sets include remote-sensing images from the Landsat Thematic Mapper (TM), the Advanced Solid-state Array Spectroradiometer (ASAS), the Airborne Synthetic Aperture Radar (AIRSAR), and the Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) Airborne Simulator (MAS).
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 from 1993 to 1996.
For further information about the study and for a full listing of the BOREAS data sets, see the BOREAS home page maintained by the ORNL DAAC.
