BOREAS HYD-05 BEAR TRAP CREEK AND NAMEKUS LAKE WINTER SURFACE FLUX DATAEntry ID: BOREAS_H5FLXD
Abstract: The BOREAS HYD-05 team collected tower flux, surface meteorological, and surface temperature data on a frozen lake (Namekus Lake) and in a mature jack pine forest in the Beartrap Creek watershed. Both sites were located in the BOREAS SSA. The objective of this study was to characterize the winter energy and water vapor fluxes, as well as related properties (such as snow density, depth, temperature, and melt) for forested and nonforested areas of the boreal forest. Data were collected on Namekus Lake in the winters of 1994 and 1996, and at Beartrap Creek in the winter of 1994 only.
