Greenhouse Gases from Arctic-CAP

Monitoring carbon dynamics during the 2017 growing season.

Arctic-CAP flight lines (orange) sampled Arctic and boreal regions of Alaska and Canada. Pins mark the locations of vertical profiles that were repeatedly acquired during the 2017 growing season.

Atmospheric carbon and methane concentrations were measured during the 2017 Arctic Carbon Aircraft Profile (Arctic-CAP) flights throughout Alaska and western Canada.

Merged Data from the Atmospheric Tomography Mission

ATom flights

Generalized overview of ATom flights. During each of the four campaigns, ATom flights originated from California, flew south over the Pacific Ocean, then north to the western Arctic, southwest to New Zealand, east to Chile and the Atlantic Ocean, north to Greenland, and returned to California across North America. During flights, the aircraft continuously profiled the atmosphere from 0.2 to 12 km altitude.

The Atmospheric Tomography Mission (ATom) has released multi-instrument merged data from all four flight campaigns spanning from 2016 - 2018.
