The ACT-America, or Atmospheric Carbon and Transport - America, project is a NASA Earth Venture Suborbital-2 mission to study the transport and fluxes of atmospheric carbon dioxide and methane across three regions in the eastern United States through flight campaigns. Each flight will measure how weather systems transport these greenhouse gases. Ground-based measurements of greenhouse gases were also-collected. Data from the first two campaigns, Summer 2016 and Winter 2017, are now publicly available from the ORNL DAAC.

ACT-America data include:
ACT-America: L1 Meteorological and Aircraft Navigational Data
ACT-America: L2 In Situ Atmospheric Gas Concentrations from Flasks, Eastern USA
ACT-America: L2 In Situ Atmospheric CO2, CO, CH4, and O3 Concentrations, Eastern USA
ACT-America: L3 Merged In Situ Atmospheric Trace Gases and Flask Data, Eastern USA
ACT-America: L2 In Situ CO2, CO, and CH4 Concentrations from Towers, Eastern USA
