The Campaign

The Oregon Transect Ecosystem Research (OTTER) project was a NASA-funded campaign designed to provide scientists with a better understanding of ecosystem functions in coniferous forests. Data collection occurred in Oregon’s coniferous forests during the summer of 1989 and concluded in 1991. Several NASA aircraft, including the ER-2 and DC-8, were used for atmospheric sampling while in-situ sampling was conducted by ground instrumentation and a truck boom. Model and satellite observations were also made throughout the project’s duration.
