  • Vegetation and meteorological observations (snow and radiation) were collected by various ground instruments in an area of forest near Abisko (Sweden) and Sodankylä (Finland) during measurement campaigns in March 2011 and March 2012. This dataset contains the laser scanning data collected at Abisko site in March 2011. A Leica C10 terrestrial laser scanner was used to acquire three-dimensional point clouds of the canopies in every study plot. Four scans from the corners of a plot and up to four additional scans from other points were made to ensure that every side of every tree within the plot was visible from at least one scan position. The scanner records x, y and z coordinates and intensity of the first return. Horizontal coordinates were converted to UTM (zones 34W for Abisko). This was a NERC funded project.
