A new dataset from the Arctic-Boreal Vulnerability Experiment (ABoVE) provides soil surface CO2 efflux derived from measurements of soil respiration using forced diffusion (FD) chambers. Measurement systems were established at seven selected sites within diverse ecosystems along a S-N transect from near Fairbanks in interior Alaska to Toolik Lake in northern Alaska. Flux was calculated using the two CO2 values and a chamber-specific precalibrated constant. Three FD chambers were deployed at each site. Data have been collected since August 2016 and sampling is continuing at active sites.
ABoVE will link field-based, process-level studies with geospatial data products derived from airborne and satellite sensors. See all data from ABoVE.
