Open Water Pixel Masks from ABoVE Flight Paths

AirSWOT Imagery

Example of color-infrared imagery shown alongside the corresponding semi-automated open water classification at Old Crow Flats, Alaska.

AirSWOT imagery from the 2017 Arctic-Boreal Vulnerability Experiment (ABoVE) was used to create water masks across parts of Canada and Alaska.

Boreal Forest Burned and Unburned Site Comparisons

Image of a burned field site.

A typical burned plot in the Saskatchewan, Canada, boreal forest study area.

Fire history and field measurements were used to estimate above- and belowground carbon values.

Boreal & Tundra Soil Respiration Data

Images of field instruments.

(A) A Soil Respiration Station (SRS), (B) a SRS data logger, and (C) a Forced Diffusion Chamber (FD chamber) deployed at a boreal forest site in central Alaska.

Data collected by soil respiration stations installed at boreal and tundra sites are available from the Arctic-Boreal Vulnerability Experiment (ABoVE).

Moose Hunting Season Environmental Conditions in Alaska

Map of study area communities.

Map of study area communities. GMUs are Game Management Units and GMU21D is highlighted.

Environmental conditions during moose hunting season for 2000-2016 are available for rural Alaska.

Alaskan Fire Fuel Components

Four maps showing fractional cover distribution.

Examples of fractional cover distribution in a tundra region near Lake Narvakrak in the Noatak River National Preserve: (a) very high-resolution imagery from Google Earth; (b) fractional cover of woody component; (b) fractional cover of herbaceous component; (d) fractional cover of nonvascular component.

Maps of three major wildland fire fuel types are available from the Arctic-Boreal Vulnerability Experiment.
