Forest fires in the ABoVE domain

The ABoVE study domain

The ABoVE study domain showing cumulative annual burned areas derived from AVHRR for 1989 - 2000.

A long-term record of annual forest fire burned area and daily hotspots are provided in a new ABoVE dataset.

Calculate Climate Anomalies from Daymet

Climate normal and anomaly calculated from Daymet

Climate anomaly (right panel) in minimum daily temperature for year 1990 compared to the long-term normal (left panel). The climate normal and anomaly were calculated for a single 2-degree tile from the Daymet dataset.

New Jupyter notebook tutorials show how to access and visualize Daymet climate data from within Python and how to calculate climate normals and anomalies.

ABoVE Arctic Vegetation Monitoring

Vegetation plot locations across Alaska

Vegetation, soil, and environmental data were collected from over 3400 plot locations in the ABoVE study area.

Vegetation species and other environmental and soil parameters are available from over 3400 plot locations within the NASA ABoVE study domain.

Tower-based carbon measurements from ACT-America

A map showing locations of ACT-America towers

Map of the locations of ACT-America towers active in 2016.

Data from ACT-America provides atmospheric carbon measurements from nine towers in the Eastern US.

Vegetation Structure in the Great Smoky Mountains

Map shows thirty unique vegetation canopy structure classes identified within the Great Smoky Mountain National Park

This overview map shows thirty unique vegetation canopy structure classes identified within the Great Smoky Mountain National Park in Tennessee and North Carolina, USA.

An updated dataset characterizes vegetation canopy structure in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park.

Fire Weather Indices for Interior Alaska

Fire Weather Index (FWI) for Interior Alaska on July 22, 2006.

Fire Weather Index (FWI) for Interior Alaska on July 22, 2006. FWI is a numerical rating between 0 and 30 where higher values indicate a higher risk of wildfire.

New data from Alaska quantify the daily weather conditions and risk of wildfire from 2001 to 2010.

Methane Emissions in Los Angeles

Locations for infrastructures associated with the energy industry with known or expected potential to emit CH4 in the South Coast Air Basin (SoCAB)

Locations for infrastructures associated with the energy industry with known or expected potential to emit CH4 in the South Coast Air Basin (SoCAB). Vista-LA includes a total of 33,614 features across 13 layers. From Carranza et al., 2017.

A new dataset from Vista-LA provides an inventory of potential methane emitting facilities in the greater Los Angeles urban area.

Mapping wildfires across Alaska and Canada

Date of Burning (DoB) was estimated for areas within each fire scar across Alaska and Canada.

Date of Burning (DoB) was estimated for areas within each fire scar across Alaska and Canada. In this figure, red areas are fire scar locations across central Canada in 2015.

New data from NASA's ABoVE project provide maps of the date of burning within fire scars across Alaska and Canada from 2001-2015.

ACT-America Tracks Atmospheric Carbon

The ACT-America mission

The Atmospheric Carbon and Transport – America (ACT-America) project is conducting airborne campaigns across three regions in the eastern United States to study the transport of atmospheric carbon.

NASA's ACT-America mission measured atmospheric CO2, CO, CH4, and O3 concentrations across the Eastern USA in 2016.
