Franca Siena, Massimo Coltorti, E Saccani & C Vaccaro
Major- and trace-element analyses, mineral chemistry, and Sr-Nd isotopic determinations were obtained on representative igneous rocks drilled from the Nankai accretionary complex (Site 808) during Ocean Drilling Program Leg 131. For the first time, the oceanic basement of the subducting plate below an accretionary prism has been reached. The Nankai Trough basement was encountered at a depth of 1289.9 mbsf and a total of 37.1 m of igneous rocks, middle Miocene (15.6 Ma) in age,...

BOREAS RSS-18 Level 1b AVIRIS At-Sensor Radiance Imagery

These data were collected and processed by the BOReal Ecosystem-Atmosphere Study (BOREAS) Remote Sensing Science Team 18 (RSS-18) at the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL). Data were acquired for BOREAS with NASA's Airborne Visible/Infrared Imaging Spectrometer (AVIRIS). This optical sensor measures images that consist of spectra from 400 to 2500 nm at 10 nm sampling. These spectra are acquired as images with 20 meter spatial resolution, 11 km swath width...

BOREAS TE-18 Biomass Density Image of the SSA

This biomass density image covers almost the entire BOREAS SSA. The pixels for which biomass density is computed include areas that are in conifer land cover classes only. The biomass density values represent the amount of overstory biomass (i.e. tree biomass only) per unit area. It is derived from a Landsat-5 TM image collected on 02-Sep-1994. The technique that was used to create this image is very similar to the technique that was used to...

Leaf area indices, biomass, and NPP vary about 10-fold across the OTTER transect. Leaf area index (LAI) ranges from 0.4 m2/m2 at the Juniper/Sisters site to 8.6 m2/m2 at the Scio western Cascade site. Total NPP follows a similar trend with...

BOREAS RSS-15 SIR-C and TM Biomass and Landcover Maps of the NSA and SSA

As part of BOREAS, the RSS-15 team conducted an investigation using SIR-C , X-SAR and Landsat TM data for estimating total above-ground dry biomass for the SSA and NSA modeling grids and component biomass for the SSA. Relationships of backscatter to total biomass and total biomass to foliage, branch, and bole biomass were used to estimate biomass density across the landscape. The procedure involved image classification with SAR and Landsat TM data and development of...

BOREAS TE-19 Ecosystem Carbon Balance Model

The BOREAS TE-19 team developed a model called the Spruce and Moss Model (SPAM) designed to simulate the daily carbon balance of a black spruce/moss boreal forest ecosystem. It is driven by daily weather conditions, and consists of four components: (1) soil climate; (2) tree photosynthesis and respiration; (3) moss photosynthesis and respiration; and (4) litter decomposition and associated heterotrophic respiration. The model simulates tree gross and net photosynthesis, wood respiration, live root respiration, moss...

BOREAS TE-18 Geosail Canopy Reflectance Model

The SAIL (Scattering from Arbitrarily Inclined Leaves) model was combined with the Jasinski geometric model to simulate canopy spectral reflectance and absorption of photosynthetically active radiation for discontinuous canopies. This model is called the GeoSail model. Tree shapes are described by cylinders or cones distributed over a plane. Spectral reflectance and transmittance of trees are calculated from the SAIL model to determine the reflectance of the three components used in the geometric model: illuminated canopy,...

Global Distribution of Plant-Extractable Water Capacity of Soil (Dunne)

Plant-extractable water capacity of soil is the amount of water that can be extracted from the soil to fulfill evapotranspiration demands. It is often assumed to be spatially invariant in large-scale computations of the soil-water balance. Empirical evidence, however, suggests that this assumption is incorrect. This data set provides an estimate of the global distribution of plant-extractable water capacity of soil. A representative soil profile, characterized by horizon (layer) particle size data and thickness, was...
