A new tutorial, available on our Resources page, demonstrates how to get ABoVE airborne data sampled at a specific field site.

Year-round Soil CO2 Measurements in Alaska

Sites of forced diffusion chamber deployment

Forced diffusion chambers were established at the seven sites along a south-to-north transect from near Fairbanks to Toolik Lake, Alaska.

Soil surface CO2 efflux in Alaska is available from the ABoVE field campaign.

Vegetation Changes Along Alaskan Rivers

Yukon River riverbank erosion and vegetation colonization

Riverbank erosion and vegetation colonization at the Yukon River 1 study area, located along the Middle Yukon River between Circle and Fort Yukon, Alaska, from 1985-2017.

Research from NASA's ABoVE campaign provides a record of riverbank erosion and vegetation colonization along major Alaskan rivers from 1984 to 2017.

Climate and Productivity of Arctic Tundra

Arctic tudra MaxNDVI biweekly mean

Arctic biweekly NDVI (green bars) and trend (grey bars) for full tundra for 1999-2015. Biweekly trends statistically significant at the 95% level or greater are marked with an asterisk on the x-axis. From Figure 9 (c) Bhatt et al. (2017) (see dataset documentation).

NASA's ABoVE provides standardized data on potential climate drivers for productivity of Arctic tundra vegetation.
