Daily Maps of Land Surface Thaw State

Surface thaw map

Surface thaw map for Alaska and Northwest Canada on April 25, 2003, derived from the Advanced Microwave Scanning Radiometer (AMSR-E).

A new dataset from NASA's CARVE mission provides the daily thaw state of the Alaskan land surface from 2003 - 2015.

Regional Methane Flux Estimates Over Alaska

Monthly mean CH4 flux estimates.

Monthly mean CH4 flux estimates for Alaska. Values are centered on the mean measurement date for a given month and the shaded regions are the standard error of the mean (figure from Hartery et al. 2018).

A new dataset from NASA's Carbon in Arctic Reservoirs Vulnerability Experiment (CARVE) provides gridded methane flux estimates from 2012-2014.
