The Boreal Ecosystem-Atmosphere Study (BOREAS) focused principally on radiation, biogeochemical, and chemistry interactions between the boreal forest and troposphere through winter, summer, and transitional seasons. This large field effort included multiple seasonal IOPs spread over two deployments in 1994 and 1996 over forested portions of Canada’s Manitoba and Saskatchewan provinces. Airborne and ground-based observations included various types of fluxes, snow characteristics, and radiative transfer properties with an aim to improve understanding and numerical representations of key climate-driving processes. BOREAS supported NASA’s Mission to Planet Earth.
