Short Name:

Tower-based PhotoSpec Products for the 2019 and 2020 Spring Transition Season, SK, CA

This dataset includes daily averaged solar-induced chlorophyll fluorescence (SIF) in the red (680-686 nm) and far-red (745-758 nm) wavelength ranges, relative SIF (SIF/Intensity), chlorophyll-carotenoid index (CCI), photochemical reflectance index (PRI), near-infrared vegetation index (NIRv), and normalized difference vegetation index (NDVI) for both black spruce (Picea mariana) and larch (Larix laricina) targets. The study site (Southern Old Black Spruce, SOBS Fluxnet ID CA-Obs) is located near the southern limit of the boreal forest ecotone in Saskatchewan, Canada. Data were collected for the spring transition in both 2019 and 2020 using PhotoSpec. Species-specific averages were calculated over each 30-minute period, then averaged again to report daily averages of SIF relative and reflectance measurements for both black spruce and larch.
