BOREAS Sep. 27 Release

Submitted by ORNL DAAC Staff on 2000-09-27

The ORNL DAAC released seven additional data sets from the Boreal Ecosystem-Atmosphere Study (BOREAS). The newest data sets include POLDER and GOES-7 images, soil carbon data, and information about the study sites.

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 BOREAS data sets, see the BOREAS home page maintained by the ORNL DAAC.
