dc.description.abstract During the first intensive field campaign for the Boreal Ecosystem Atmospheric Study (BOREAS) in August of 1993, AIRSAR data were acquired over the entire BOREAS study area. On of the objectives of the AIRSAR deployment was to examine the sensitivity of the radar signal to vegetation type and biomass distribution in the boreal forest and to develop algorithms for inferring vegetation parameters. During the experiment a set of ground measurements were also made to support the AIRSAR data analysis. The dominant stands in the study area consist of black spruce, young jack pine, old jack pine, and aspen. These stands represent a wide range of biomass and canopy architectural variations which can be distinguished in SAR images. en_US
