BOREAS AFM-04 TWIN OTTER AIRCRAFT FLUX DATAEntry ID: BOREAS_AFM4TOFX
Abstract: The BOREAS AFM-04 team used the NRC Twin Otter aircraft in 1994 and 1996 to make measurements in the boundary layer of the fluxes of sensible and latent heat, momentum, ozone, methane, and carbon dioxide, plus supporting meteorological parameters such as temperature, humidity, and wind speed and direction. Aircraft position, heading, and altitude were also recorded, as were several radiometric observations for use in interpretation of the data (greenness index, surface temperature, incoming and reflected radiation). Data were collected at both the NSA and SSA during the three 1994 IFCs and in July and August of 1996.

Quality The data have been extensively checked during the course of the creation of the various reports produced by the MNCR programme. This included the MNCR Area Summary report series which describes the marine habitats in particular regions around the UK and the creation of the national marine habitat (biotope) classification system. Through this work the vast majority of the anomalies and errors in the data should have been identified but some may still remain.
