Sub-Meter Scale Vegetation Maps for Toolik Lake, Alaska

Vegetation communities.

Vegetation communities for the Toolik footprint shown at 1:25,000 scale.

Plant communities near Toolik Lake research station in Alaska were classified at 20 cm resolution based on airborne imagery and lidar surveys.

Black Carbon Aerosols from ATom

The SP2 instrument.

The NOAA Single Particle Soot Photometer (SP2) is a laser-induced incandescence instrument primarily used for measuring the black carbon mass content of individual particles.

Black carbon concentrations were measured over remote regions of the Earth during NASA's Atmospheric Tomography (ATom) Mission.

Correction to Daymet Monthly Climate Summaries

Daymet precipitation in January 2000

Daymet V3 total precipitation for January 2000 for a subset of the Daymet domain in eastern North America.

The ORNL DAAC has released a correction to “Daymet Monthly Climate Summaries on a 1-km Grid for North America, Version 3."

MODIS MAIAC at ABoVE Flux Towers

ABoVE domain.

New MAIAC data were calculated at 62 flux tower sites within the ABoVE domain in Alaska and Canada.

MODIS Multi-Angle Implementation of Atmospheric Correction algorithm (MAIAC) surface reflectances are available for 62 flux tower sites in the ABoVE domain.

Data collected by the Diode Laser Hygrometer (DLH) instrument during the Atmospheric Tomography (ATom) Mission is now available.

River Ice Breakup and Freeze-up Stages from ABoVE

Freeze-up stages.

Examples of freeze-up stages in the Grayling study area. Landsat images are displayed as color composites (R: SWIR, G: NIR, B: green), where water appears dark blue and snow/ice appears light blue.

Estimates of river ice breakup and freeze-up stages along selected reaches of the Yukon and Tanana Rivers in the Yukon River Basin in interior Alaska from 1972-2016 are now available from ABoVE.

MODIS-derived Forest Radiation Data for Brazil

Average daily net radiation.

Average daily net radiation for the 8-day timestep, 2000-03-29 to 2000-04-06, in the upper Xingu River Basin, Mato Grosso, Brazil, study area.

Three MODIS products were used to derive daily average land surface net radiation for the forests of the upper Xingu River Basin in Mato Grosso, Brazil.

Hydrogen Oxide Data from ATom

Data collected by the Airborne Tropospheric Hydrogen Oxides Sensor (ATHOS) instrument during the Atmospheric Tomography (ATom) Mission is now available.

Forest Carbon Across the Western USA

Above ground live tree carbon.

Annual estimates of aboveground live tree carbon (g/m2) as simulated with the Community Land Model (4.5) at 1/24-degree (4 km x 4 km) resolution.

The North American Carbon Program provides new, annual, estimated forest carbon budgets for the Western USA from 1979 to 2099.

CO2 Flux for the Northern Gulf of Mexico

pCO2 for the northern Gulf of Mexico.

Monthly composite images of satellite-derived pCO2 for the northern Gulf of Mexico, corresponding to each of the cruises for which observational data were acquired. Black pixels in the images correspond to areas that were masked (e.g., land, clouds), and the dotted lines represent the 45 and 200 m isobaths.

Monthly estimates of ocean surface pCO2 and air-sea flux of CO2 are available from NASA's Carbon Monitoring System.
