BOREAS TF-02 SSA-OA Tethersonde Meteorological and Ozone Data

Data Set Overview

Data setBOREAS TF-02 SSA-OA Tethersonde Meteorological and Ozone Data
Release date2000-01-27
ProjectBoreal Ecosystem-Atmosphere Study
Time Period1993-10-17 to 1994-09-19


The BOREAS TF-02 team collected various trace gas and energy flux data along with meteorological parameters at the SSA-OA site. This data set contains meteorological and ozone measurements from instruments mounted below a tethered balloon. These data were collected at the SSA-OA site to extend meteorological and ozone measurements made from the flux tower to heights of 300 m.

Boreal Ecosystem-Atmosphere Study: The Boreal Ecosystem-Atmosphere Study was a large-scale international interdisciplinary experiment in the boreal forests of central Canada. Its focus was improving our understanding of the exchanges of radiative energy, sensible heat, water, CO2 and trace gases between the boreal forest and the lower atmosphere. A primary objective of BOREAS was to collect the data needed to improve computer simulation models of the important processes controlling these exchanges so that scientists can anticipate the effects of global change, principally altered temperature and precipitation patterns, on the biome.
