Mapping Surface Waters from ABoVE

Open surface waters for a location in Canada

Orthomosaic imagery taken from a Beechcraft Super King Air B200 aircraft traveling north of the Mackenzie River in the Dehcho Region of Canada.

NASA's 2017 ABoVE airborne campaign provides high-resolution, georeferenced, three-band orthomosaics of digital imagery to validate maps of Arctic surface water extent.

Data Highlight: Nitrogen Deposition

Total inorganic nitrogen deposition in the early 1990s.

Spatial patterns of total inorganic nitrogen deposition in the early 1990s. Darker areas have higher levels of nitrogen deposition (mg N/m2/y).

Gridded estimates of atmospheric nitrogen deposition are some of the most downloaded data of 2018.

Carbon Storage in Tropical Forests

This image shows the height of the forest canopy for a portion of the Pongara National Park along the Gabon Estuary in Gabon, West Africa. This area includes some of the tallest mangrove forests in the world, indicated by a dark green color, where trees tower up to 60 meters (200 feet). The data were estimated by fusion of PolInSAR and LiDAR data collected by the AfriSAR campaign in March 2016.

NASA’s AfriSAR campaign measured forest structure in Gabon, West Africa to inform estimates of forest carbon storage capacity.

Feedbacks Between Climate and Alaskan Wildlife

Scientists with NASA's ABoVE field campaign are studying links between snowpack properties and Dall sheep populations and movement.
