Leaf Area Index Maps at 30-m Resolution, VALERI Site, Larose, Canada
Entry ID: doi:10.3334/ORNLDAAC/829_1


Summary
Abstract: This data set provide local LAI maps for the Larose (Ontario) site in Canada. These derived maps may also be useful for validating other LAI maps over this same site given that the area is protected from disturbance. The maps should be used for the given period of validity. The LAI data are suitable for use in modeling the carbon, water, energy, energy and trace gas exchange between the land surface and the atmosphere at regional scales. The dataset may also be useful for monitoring changes in the land surface. A complete description of producing the maps for the Larose site and the ground measurement campaign is provided in the companion document Larose2003FTReport.pdf.
