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.

An updated version of the standard reference grid for NASA's ABoVE campaign has been released.

Spring Snowmelt Across Alaska

Date of last spring snow cover in 2000

Date of last spring snow cover for portions of Alaska and the Yukon Territory in 2000. Data spatial extent is based on the MODIS sinusoidal projection.

Data from NASA's ABoVE campaign tracks the last day of spring snow cover for parts of Alaska and the Yukon Territory annually from 2000 through 2016.
